Some things from the past stay fresh in the mind . . . the curve of a young woman's breast, the sheen of suntan on her legs. A look, a sidelong glance, so beautiful your mind takes a snapshot to retain it forever, so vivid that the colours never fade out. Out to sea on a pristine morning on the gaff-rigged cutter Madam Butterfly with the ocean spray hitting your face, when you were young and strong and anything was possible. Set in Australia, the Pacific islands, Japan and Indonesia during the later half of the twentieth century, FISHING FOR STARS follows Nick Duncan, an ingenuous man with a great deal more female on his hands than he can ever possibly hope to understand. The contest he is called upon to referee is the clash between two great loves of his life: the seductive Anna Til, and the older, equally fascinating Marg Hamilton. Nick struggles between their worlds: one exploiting the world's riches for profit, the other fighting to save the environment and its creatures, large and small.
