The Colour Of The Night

Author(s): Robert Hollingworth

Australian Fiction

An expose of contemporary life seen from the perspective of an eleven-year-old boy.


Shaun, a country boy, is orphaned after a bushfire and must now live in the city where he meets many lonely, mixed-up residents. Can his world of benign nature and theirs of dispirited culture, be reconciled?


It is a story of polarities: the country and the city; nature and culture; the material and the digital; the spirit and the flesh; lost faith and renewed hope.
