The Glitter Rose stories are set against the background of Carmine Island where a decade ago spores from deep in the ocean blew in, by a freak of nature, and settled on the sands. These spores bring fierce allergies to the island's population. And maybe other, more sinister effects. As we follow Tinashi’s journey of moving to Carmine and settling into island life, a clearer picture emerges of just what is happening.

Glitter Rose is named after the glitter rose dusks that happen at certain tides –  when the last of sunset has fallen, a strange phosphorescence can be seen on the sands of the beaches. Colourless at first, it rapidly changes to a “carpet of tiny, shining, rose-coloured grains” as the sky darkens.

If you are coming to these elegant, truthful and sensuous stories for the first time I envy you. They’ll haunt your dreams, yes, but what fabulous dreams. On Carmine Island as dusk settles into the glitter rose gleam of evening, anything is possible. -- Trent Jamieson
