Cassowary Hill pivots between Australia and the U.S., and highlights ticklish instances of fondness and disconnection between the two countries. Over the shifting ground of awkward friendships, love affairs and farcical grassroots activism are cast the shadows of interlopers. Some represent large nations that torment the inhabitants of small ones; some are lone individuals intruding on the territory of prodigious animal life in a rainforest habitat that as yet remains miraculously undamaged by human encroachment. Cassowary Hill is at once a rebuke to authority and a tragicomedy about nature, politics, art, wine and love.

About the Author

David de Vaux is an almost lifelong expatriate and traveler of
British origin. He has worked in five countries, in teaching,
publishing, editing, arts funding and theater, and his published work includes two collections of poetry, some short fiction and contract assignments. After living for eight years on a mountain acreage in northern New Mexico, he and his wife are now based in Portland, Oregon - but with a stake in north-eastern Australia and in a bucolic tropical bolt-hole there, within reach of children and grandchildren.
