The Fall. "The Insatiable Desire of Injured Love" by Sally Morrison. [review]
Sally Morrison's new novel is the story of 27-year-old Renata Ochiltree's recovery from a fall in Victoria's Cathedral Ranges in 1973 - a fiction based on Morrison's own accident in the same year and place. Stepping out to meet the arms of the rescuer, Renata instead finds herself broken at the bottom of the cliff. The novel takes place in hospital as Renata lies trapped in her bed with broken arms, a neck brace, a cracked skull and broken teeth.
