Out of the Line of FireBook - 2014

"Experimental, extraordinary. . . . One of my favorite Australian novels."-- Australian
When a brilliant young philosophy student begins recounting his life--from his inquisitorial father and passionate mother to his eccentric grandmother who paid for his sexual initiation with the beautiful Andrea--we are lured into a mysterious and erotic maze. But what in fact is fact, and what in fiction is fiction? Brilliantly seductive, Out of the Line of Fire was the literary sensation of the year when it was first published in 1988 and was a hit in France, Germany and Italy.
