this tiny crack
in our lives
wind and rain strewn
stranded on the limen
that space between
water and sky
rain and sun
cold and heat
When two women and a dog set off on a holiday they have no inkling of what’s to come.
They wake to find the river has crept up silently during the night. Trapped by floodwater, they devise escape routes only to be faced with more obstacles at every turn.
Only the dog remains calm.
This novella grips you with its language, its pace, its anxieties.

Limen is more than just a story of about the northern Queensland wilderness. … The space, where the two women and the dog are at once freed and imprisoned by the wilderness, is a space where they are either about to exist or not. They are part of no human society; they are constrained by no rules. For the space f nine days, they are merely together, present as the cormorant or the kookaburra is present in the landscape.
Is there a moral to the story? In some ways, this could be a parable of our times, as the women (here and now, these individuals) appear as victims of their environment through no fault of their own.Mary Cresswell, Plumwood Mountain
