New Robbie Arnott Novel Coming this October

Book cover, Dusk, by Robbie Arnott

Exciting news just in: one of Tassie's favourite authors, Robbie Arnott, will release his fourth book in October this year. The beloved author of Limberlost, The Rain Heron and Flames brings a new work called Dusk, published by Picador (an imprint of Pan Macmillan Australia).

About Dusk

In the distant highlands, a puma named Dusk is killing shepherds. Down in the lowlands, twins Iris and Floyd are out of work, money and friends. When they hear that a bounty has been placed on Dusk, they reluctantly decide to join the hunt. As they journey up into this wild, haunted country, they discover there's far more to the land and people of the highlands than they imagined. And as they close in on their prey, they're forced to reckon with conflicts both ancient and deeply personal.
