A young man named Levi McAllister decides to build a coffin for his sister, Charlotte - who promptly runs for her life. A water rat swims upriver in quest of the cloud god. A fisherman named Karl hunts for tuna in partnership with a seal. And a father takes form from fire.

Richard Flanagan, Man Booker-winning author of The Narrow Road to the Deep North

«Ambitious storytelling from a stunning new Australian voice. Flames is constantly surprising-I never knew where the story would take me next. This book has a lovely sense of wonder for the world. It's brimming with heart and compassion.»

Rohan Wilson

«Robbie Arnott is a vivid and bold new voice in Australian fiction»

Danielle Wood

«[With a] magic realist flair that will appeal to fans of Angela Carter... It is glorious, messy, and a bit weird.»
