Part memoir, part guide to Sydney, Australia, this melancholic, moving, and funny exploration intertwines novelist Delia Falconer’s own stories with the city’s historical and literary past, showing how the city has evolved from the 1970s through today. From mad clergymen and amateur astronomers to Indigenous weather experts and local artists, this personal and unique record depicts the inhabitants of a beautiful, violent, and deeply spiritual city.
Delia Falconer is the author of The Lost Thoughts of Soldiers and The Service of Clouds. Her short stories and essays have been featured in various anthologies, including The Best Australian Essays, The Macquarie PEN Anthology of Australian Literature, and The Penguin Century of Australian Stories. She lives in Sydney, Australia.
