Alice Nelson in Spring 2009 edition of Asia Literary Review

Check out the Asia Literary Review for Alice Nelson's latest short story!

Alice says: "The Pearl Divers came out of my fascination with Broome and its rich history. The story is set at the height of the pearling mania in Broome and looks at the lives of several people living at Broome and the unravelling marriage of a pearl master and his wife. It's also concerned with the misery and the horror that much of the wealth and privilege of Broome was built on."
