Abstract: "Spirit Wrestlers" is Thomas Shapcott’s tenth novel. The setting is a Lutheran farming community in south-east Queensland, not far from Brisbane. The novel begins in 1964, and the conservative Schumacher family – proud of their self-sufficient pioneer traditions and shunning television’s ‘corrupting influence’ – witnesses the arrival in the district of a small community of Doukhobors, a Russian Christian sect, seeking a new Eden, having been in Canada for 60 years.
