Title: Broken
Author: Butler, Mary Anne
Price: $22.95

A car crash in the Central Desert. A broken man, about to leave his wife. A woman miscarrying her first born child. Broken entwines the stories of three complex lives as they unfold on a single fateful night in the heart of the Northern Territory’s desert country.

Winner of the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Drama, the Northern Territory Literary Award for Best Script and the Victorian Prize for Literature, BROKEN wrestles with matters of chance, choice, hope and fate – posing the question: When you find yourself empty, how do you start again?

Includes an introduction by Andrew Bovell.

‘This is exquisite writing. It’s immediate. It’s lean. It’s poetic. It’s visceral. It takes you right into the heart of the experiences it describes.’ Andrew Bovell
