Overview

Attack at the Dolphin is written by former Sydney Morning Herald journalist and woman-about-town Bridget Wilson. Set during the hard drinking high roller days of 1990's Sydney, this short entertaining read is a sometimes painful, always moving, often funny meditation on marriage, fidelity, love and lust, loyalty and betrayal. Married for many years to her most devoted fan, the book's protagonist finds herself coming undone when a bright young cadet at the newspaper where she works starts paying her attention. Flattered and surprised, she finds herself drinking in Sydney's trendiest bars with a "toyboy" on her arm. Meanwhile her patient husband waits at home. Then one of her best women friends steps into the equation. And all hell breaks loose, The books central scene is set in one of Sydney's best known inner-city pubs, The Dolphin. It is here that the woman protagonist, all too aware of her own hypocrisy, confronts her unfaithful young lover and disloyal friend.

“I couldn’t put it down! And that’s coming from a person who ‘doesn’t read’! Wilson does a superb job of bringing to life her main character - whom you instantly make a connection with. Her turn of phrase and use of antipodean vernacular is refreshing and entertaining. The depicted dramas are incredibly real - giving the reader a window into Sydney in the 90’s. I applaud Wilson for her pithy piece of work and wait in anticipation for her next piece!"            Julia McDonald
