Currently nominated for two major Australian literature awards.

Sometimes, it's impossible to get home, especially if home is not where you think it is.
 
Aboriginal urbanite Billy doesn't know much about his heritage and he's quite content to let it stay that way. One late night out changes all that.

After being marooned on a central Australian highway, he finds his future determined by a pair of unlikely saviours, elders of a small aboriginal community, and some uncomfortable truths.
Not to mention the assistance of a mysterious entity only he can see.
 
Relying on instinct and confounded by circumstances beyond his control he tries to find his way home.
 
Loreless-part quest, part ghost story, part contemporary tale-takes the reader on a road trip through a central Australia filled with humour and endless surprise.
