Australian Fiction

Tom Gilling's wonderful new novel is set in the nineteenth century and tells the tale of Miles McGinty, a young man who decides to learn how to fly. We meet an entrancing cast of characters- among them a kind of swagman, an enigmatic fellow who makes his living doing levitation tricks- Eliza, Miles's grandly theatrical mother; and Mr Windsor, a lightfingered pedagogue who likes to meddle in the affairs of others.

And when Miles meets Isabel McCauley, a clever, sceptical girl, romance takes flight and the two lovers join in a journey to their destiny.

Buoyant and romantic, Miles McGintywill delight fans of Tom Gilling's debut novel The Sooterkinwhich became a New York Times Notable Book, and announced the arrival of a powerful and beguiling new writer.
