A biker's moll, a real-estate shark, a Vietnam veteran who can't forget, an Australian artist fighting drugs and despair in New York...
In these four interlinked tales, these vividly drawn characters and their friends, lovers and enemies reinvent themselves as they search for love against a background of passion, ambition, risk, betrayal and death.
Praise for The Floor of Heaven
'A rattling good read' - John Ashbery
'The Floor of Heaven is a tour de force, a devious and profoundly subversive conjuring trick by a poet writing at the peak of his powers... the book pulses with a curious resonance... reminded me irresistibly of the best moments in Twin Peaks ... a strange lyricism. - Andrew Riemer, Sydney Morning Herald
‘Stories that are elegantly linked not only by some of the characters but by images and signatures — the swish of tyres in the rain, the hint of perfume ... A hypnotic read.' - Carmel Bird, Australian Book Review
