Kingsley McGlews is at the forefront of innovative writing with Distanceplaying on elements of psychological fiction and sci-fi. With skilful narration and a distinctive voice McGlew captures the barrenness of the north-western outback and depicts the awkward-but-necessary friendships and encounters that can arise there. Hans Angel jumped off a plane and parachuted into a gum tree in Port Hedland to run away. He needed to escape responsibility to think about where he was going to forget Mary Rainfall. While there he meets No Shit Harry and Spanish Mack who become his travel companions along the Great Northern Highway. But as Hans Angel discovers distancing oneself from ones problems is not so simple. This is what I need. Time to work out where I went wrong. I need to close the distance between my dreams and my reality. I cant walk away forever. Distance is essential reading for those interested in following the new direction taken by Australian fiction.
