Title: "The True Green of Hope" by N. A. Bourke. [review]
Authors: Dooley, Gillian Mary
Keywords: Gillian Dooley
Jules Verne, "Le Rayon Vert"
Issue Date: 2-Sep-2005
Publisher: Adelaide Review
Citation: Dooley, Gillian 2005. Review of "The True Green of Hope" by N. A. Bourke. 'The Adelaide Review', September 2, 21.
Abstract: We tend to think of the Gold Coast as a haven for the idle rich, but in "The True Green of Hope" it is a place where people live, work, and struggle with their demons just like the rest of us. The only difference is that the weather is kinder to the homeless — and there’s always the beach. This engaging but pensive novel is preoccupied with relationships between lesbian lovers, sisters, mothers and daughters, and a five-year-old niece whose cuteness sometimes cloys. Men are marginal, either irrelevant or a bad memory from younger days on the streets.
