2. Balmain: “An enquiry, at once lyrical and tragic, into the reality of (the inner Sydney suburb of) Balmain in 1969 – an historic, beautiful and ideally located residential suburb threatened with partial extinction by lack of government planning and foresight, and by indifference to residents’ interests.” Peter King, ‘The Australian’
3. The Phallic Forest: The story is about Oliver and Julia, he in advertising, she an academic, living in a terrace house which they’re renovating, while at the same time their relationship is falling apart.
