Publisher Description

Tense and absorbing, this innovative novel brings a fresh approach to New Zealand writing.

What happens when grief draws you to your partner's married brother?

28 year-old Djuna is without a foothold. The suicide of her partner has left her derailed and casting about for the joy she fears may be gone for good. Her parents' relationship has disintegrated, her family home is occupied by Burmese refugees, and she is drawn to the one man she must reject.

In pursuit of a roving father and a renewed sense of belonging, Djuna wanders from Wellington to the natural beauty of New Zealand's remote East Cape. Narrated in vivid, confessional vignettes, The Salted Air tells a story of transgression, love and hope.
