Shell - Kristina Olsson

In this big, bold and hauntingly beautiful portrait of art and life, Shell captures a world on the brink of seismic change though the eyes of two unforgettable characters caught in the eye of the storm. And reminds us why taking a side matters.

`A beautifully crafted novel about a fascinating time in our history. There is a luminous precision in every sentence.' Heather Rose, award-winning author of The Museum of Modern Love
`Shell is a brilliant and beautiful novel, full of lyrical grace and sensitive observation. There's a special joy in its attention to creativity, family love and the complex dignity of labour. And at its centre: the Sydney Opera House; not simply an icon, but reimagined as art object, aspiration, and a kind of international dream ...' Gail Jones, award-winning author of Five Bells and The Death of Noah Glass
