Trent Dalton’s dazzling debut, Boy Swallows Universe, became the fastest selling Australian fiction debut ever, selling over half a million copies in Australia alone. His highly anticipated follow up, All Our Shimmering Skies, is set in Darwin in 1942 and is a sweeping mythological odyssey of love and adventure, magical and masterfully imaginative, populated by a Dickensian cast of finely drawn colourful characters, led by gravedigger’s daughter Molly Hook, a tenacious spirit as full of heart and hope as the novel she inhabits.
