Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 099451820X, Paperback)

Arriving in 1970s Australia from a country torn apart by war, young Perry realises he is different and carries a secret he cannot share. Growing up, he works hard to overcome his demons, to achieve his dreams, to be a good son, to be the man his absent father could never be. When serious illness strikes, Perry must return to his country of birth to search for the only man who can save him, his father. These interconnected stories, many previously published in literary journals and anthologies, deal with one man's search for identity, love and a sense of belonging. Luke Icarus Simon writes with a poet's sensibility, deftly exploring the trials and tribulations of one immigrant family's history with poignant candour and humour.
