How many pieces of yourself could you lose or have stolen or damaged before you became someone else? There is no Vera without Gary. Except that Gary is gone. Vera and Gary have always been entwined. They spent endless sprawling holidays at Corny Point with Vera's little sister, Emmeline, always in the shadows. But the umbilical cord that tethered Vera and Gary has snapped. When Vera returns to Corny Point with her cantankerous partner, Oswald, the rubble of her childhood emerges and Vera finally sees. It wasn't always just about Gary. Shifting and swelling like the tide on a remote Australian beach, Michelle Jger's debut novel reminds us that unobliging women can be the most interesting of all.
