Incest, suicide, quasi-bestiality are some of the elements of this very psychological novel which explores with considerable acumen the murky terrain of dominance, complicity, and submission in intense relationships, and the "animal instincts" which cannot be suppressed. Thomas Keneally's sixth book; [vi], , 3-147,  pages.
