'It's hard to find the right words to praise this novel. I think we need a whole new critical vocabulary to be invented. Rawson recreates a vanished historical world with utterly convincing characters as well as inhabits the mind of a cephalopod alien and make us feel, in both cases, yes, that's exactly how it is. Jane Rawson's writing is mysterious, chilling and tender. The book is a sort of miracle.' Lian Hearn

From the Wreck tells the remarkable story of George Hills, who survived the sinking of the steamship Admella off the South Australian coast in 1859. Haunted by his memories and the disappearance of a fellow survivor, George's fractured life is intertwined with that of a woman from another dimension, seeking refuge on Earth. 

This is a novel imbued with beauty and feeling, filled both with existential loneliness and a deep awareness that all life is interdependent.
