On Salt Madonna `McGuire hauls home her accomplished, complex and surreal story with tremendous confidence and flair.' Deborah Levy, prize winning British novelist, short story writer and playwright 1980: the beginning of the Polish Crisis. Brought up in a small village, country-girl Ania arrives in the university city of Wroclaw to pursue her career as a sculptor. Here she falls in love with Dominik, an enigmatic writer at the centre of a group of bohemians and avant-garde artists who throw wild parties. When martial law is declared, their lives change overnight: military tanks appear on the street, curfews are introduced and the artists are driven underground. Together, Ania and Dominik fight back, pushing against the boundaries imposed by the authoritarian communist government. But at what cost? `A tender, moving tale of beauty amidst loss, you'll be utterly immersed in Ania's world. Home Is Nearby is an impressive debut by an exciting new voice.' Mark Brandi, author of Wimmera, Winner of the Crime Writers' Association Debut Dagger `A moving, powerful snapshot of Poland's turbulent history and of the migrant's experience of losing one future and piecing together another in a new country.' Katherine Brabon, author of The Memory Artist and winner of the Australian/Vogel's literary award
