In 1994, Queensland author Jay Verney published her first novel "A Mortality Tale". This novel has now been published again by University of Queensland Press in a companion volume to her new novel "Percussion". These novels have much in common – even one of the characters. Verney’s world is peopled by retrenched public servants and the families of small-town publicans from sub-tropical Queensland. Separation, divorce and violent death are disturbingly frequent events.
