Sorry Business (2018)
By John & Pip Hughes
No one does fieldwork in the Wet. The Top End becomes one vast swamp: outstations are isolated for months at a time. Yet something drew Penni back to Maningrida. Something powerful. Something she could not speak of.
Penni is missing. And our souls flow like water.
Five southern women, balanda, clueless about Country, clueless about themselves. Sisters, lovers, friends. Sick with worry. Searching for Penni. Uncovering secrets. Glimpsing a darkness that is neither present nor absent.
A love story. A ghost story. A Djang story. Sorry business.
