WITH HER debut, The Book of Wishes and Complaints, Zina Rohan climbed so high that it seemed the only place for her writing to go was down. It is a tribute to her talents and nerve that her second novel, The Sandbeetle, floats even higher. Rohan has unearthed a bitter chapter of British history and made it a part of Leo Beck's story: the internment of enemy aliens leads the British government to deport thousands of refugees - most of them Jews - to Australia. Their harrowing voyage, tortured by illness and British soldiers, ends in the desert 'thrown like a bolt of terracotta corduroy. ruched and wrinkled over the horizon'.

Leo Beck is a Jewish child refugee. The Sandbeetle is at once a richly detailed, gripping portrait of one man's struggle for identity, and a powerful exploration of the nature of belonging: to a country, a family, a race, a religious tradition - to humanity.

This is a powerful novel about the effects of both concealing and of revealing the truth. With her debut, The Book of wishes and Complaints, Zina Rohan climbed so high that it seemed the only place for her writing to go was down.

This poem does not set out to reconcile these opposing voices but steps back from the tempestuous encounter and offers a chorus to it. Many thanks to Zina Rohan for reading.
