'There are only a handful of novelists who have looked at the 60s of demonstrations, civil disobedience, riots, imprisonment and change - thank heavens Hall has joined their ranks with such a perceptive and honest account. Pass it on to your children' (Michael Hyde, author of All Along the Watchtower) Summer's Gone details Nick's relationship with Helen and explores themes of nostalgia and modern Australian history, such as what it was like to live in Australia during the 1960s. If focuses on a number of important social and political issues of the 60s and 70s - women's rights, contraception, the Vietnam War and fighting conscription, and experiences of hitchhiking from Perth to Melbourne and back again.
