Everyone controls Sophie. She can’t walk and she can’t talk, but behind her disability hides a keen intelligence. Living on The Styx River cattle station with her father and a nanny, Sophie is acutely aware that she is a non-person. She feels as voiceless and isolated as the wallabies of The Wall, an eerie wilderness of basalt lava tubes forming a natural stone labyrinth that protects its remote lushness from anyone foolish enough to wander in.

When Mya Paw Wah commits a crime during a political protest in Yangon, she flees the city to avoid the fate of her father and brother – one a political prisoner, the other killed in the police action against the protest. Military Intelligence agents, human traffickers, landmines and snakes are among the dangers Mya faces in her journey to Karen State, near the Thai border, to find her exiled mother. To survive, she plays many roles – bar-girl, novice nun, military porter, teacher – some by choice, others forced on her, as she struggles to overcome anger and despair, and maintain hope for a better life.

“a raucous, dramatic, very funny book … compulsively readable” — Kerryn Goldsworthy, Sydney Morning Herald

“Abel’s story fits into the genre of a man recounting the follies and angst of his youth … the experimental storytelling and the unconventional style mixes it up enough that it remains interesting and somehow fresh.” — Good Reading magazine

Pull the pin, hear the ping, silver ball bounce and ding… Abel Jackson Marvin is in a coma reliving the pinball game of his life – the bumps and ricochets of bushfire, family breakup, heroic rescues, disabling and fatal accidents, marriage, fatherhood – while a clock counts away the seconds of his life and a female voice urges him to give a full account of himself.
