Water under Water, the new novel by Peter Rix, was launched in Sydney last weekend, and has attracted quite a bit of publicity, including an excellent article (with some great photos of Peter Rix's family) in the the June issue of the Australian Women's Weekly. Reviews are begining to appear in the mainstream media. Louise Swinn in The Australian liked both the story and the writing.
It is available in mainstream bookshops, and for members to borrow from our library. You could also suggest that your local community library add it to their collection - perhaps for Book Week (22-26 August) or for Down Syndrome Awareness Week (16-22 October) - if not immediately.
