My child, a large pink daughter of many wrinkles and folds, was the most indubitable fact I had ever seen. She shocked me, lying naked and lewd on a sheet: her cleft was swollen, pink pursey. The women watched me to see what I would make of this creature.

Welcome to the mind of Albion Gidley Singer.

In this early masterpiece Kate Grenville, author of the award-winning The Secret River, has ventured into the dark places of the human soul. With her incomparable skill and insight, she introduces us to a man - a respectable man, wrapped snugly in the costume of status - and opens him up to show us the fear and hatred that drive him. Dark Placesrevisits Grenville's earlier work Lilian's Story, but this time we see the events unfold through the eyes of her father.

Compulsive, disturbing, utterly unputdownable, Dark Placesis an extraordinary work of fiction that resonates long after the last page is turned.
