Summary:
  • The Dark Wet is the first collection of short stories by Jess Huon. Richly lyrical and beautifully felt, it explores the struggle towards a potent sense of self and belonging, expressed in three sequences of stories: that of Jed Harp, his lover Danny Hess, and his poet sister Alexandra; of Bell and Oliver, a couple moving between Melbourne and San Francisco; and of a young woman confronting religion and sex in a Christian community in India. Drawing on a rich range of settings, from the lush and vast Top End of Australia, to the mountains of India, and vibrant urban centres, The Dark Wet is a brutally honest portrayal of lives grasping at fluidity and transgression, and the possibility of redemption and change.
