Noted Australian author Susan Hawthorne creates a desert odyssey as she interweaves the emotional and physical journeys of her central characters. In doing so she has written a powerful exploration of myth and place, survival and self. Through Stella's experience and struggles of epilepsy, Susan Hawthorne also offers a rare and extraordinary insight into the mystery of a condition all but ignored by modern literature. Set in a living, chameleon landscape, The Falling Woman is laced with startling allegory and imagery intertwining the worlds the science and spirituality, creating a psychological narrative of power and originality.
