"Rob Walker has produced a delightful cross-genre melee ... sometimes bucolic, sometimes heartwarming and homespun and sometimes apocalyptic, but always engaging and thought- provoking, taking the reader into different times and places, always with an eye to opening perception." ~ Magdalena Ball, editor of 'Compulsive Reader' "Rob Walker reveals the breadth of his talents in this quirky collection of fiction, memoir and poetry. This is a book of journeys: on foot, bus, train and spaceship, from ancient past into distant future, from Australia to Japan and back again. Walker is our whimsical guide, moving effortlessly between the grounded normality of childhood memory and the surreal fantasy of an imagined future. An insightful dissection of contemporary morality that bristles with humour and humanity." ~ Alison Flett, poetry editor of 'Transnational Literature'
