this tiny crack

in our lives

wind and rain strewn

stranded on the limen

that space between

water and sky

rain and sun

cold and heat

 

When two women and a dog set off on a holiday they have no inkling of what’s to come.

They wake to find the river has crept up silently during the night. Trapped by floodwater, they devise escape routes only to be faced with more obstacles at every turn.

Only the dog remains calm.

This novella grips you with its language, its pace, its anxieties.

Limen is more than just a story of about the northern Queensland wilderness. … The space, where the two women and the dog are at once freed and imprisoned by the wilderness, is a space where they are either about to exist or not. They are part of no human society; they are constrained by no rules. For the space f nine days, they are merely together, present as the cormorant or the kookaburra is present in the landscape.

Sarah Brooks, Sinister Wisdom
Is there a moral to the story? In some ways, this could be a parable of our times, as the women (here and now, these individuals) appear as victims of their environment through no fault of their own.
Mary Cresswell, Plumwood Mountain
Its images and metaphors, its slow unfolding, its fears and joys celebrate the feminine.
Patrick McCauley, Rochford Street Review
