My first recommendation is Memory’s Dancer by the Australian writer Susan Wills Goss. This stunning novel appeared in 1985 and never had the recognition it deserved, probably because it was published by a Brighton cooperative that didn’t have the wherewithal to promote it.
First editions of Memory’s Dancer are harder to find even than the elusive Green Equinox – collectors of literary fiction will appreciate just how rare that makes it – and it is every bit as beautifully written.
Why an Australian publisher hasn’t picked this up, I can’t imagine.
