It's the early 1990s and Gus Watson is learning how tough it is to become an adult. In three linked narratives, Across a Fluky Sea navigates four tumultuous years as Gus grapples with the vulnerabilities of love, the disintegration of his closest childhood friend, and a growing awareness that youth is nothing if not fleeting. This novella is a haunting exploration of life, love and loss from acclaimed author Ken Spillman. "Brilliantly written … Spillman creates his characters with sensitivity, and sketches their experiences with great craft and skill.' ? The West Australian
