I started it on the plane and it was by my side until I turned that final page. What a riveting tale!!!/5(). This is the saddest love story I have ever read.

But not for the reasons you might imagine. The Swan Book is Alexis Wright’s third novel and like her first two – Plains of Promise () and the Miles Franklin Award winning Carpentaria () – it opens in her ancestral country, the grass plains of the Gulf of Carpentaria.
