About this book
It's a sweltering summer's day, and Anja Aropalo is on her way home with two errands in mind: first, to water the roses, and then to commit suicide. She is slowly losing her husband to Alzheimer's disease, and she has made him a terrible promise - one she's not sure she can keep.
A beautifully produced hardback edition of a classic of Australian nature writing, with the original introduction by C.J. Dennis and a new foreword by Sean Dooley.
