Call Me When the Cross Turns Over (D’Arcy Niland) lands on the shelves of my shop.
London, Sydney, Melbourne & Wellington: Angus & Robertson, 1958, (First Edition) Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: The enchanting title of DArcy Nilands new novel has no religious significance. That constellation of the Southern Hemisphere known as the Southern Cross appears to be turning over in the clear Australian sky far above drovers watching their cattle by night. The apparent movement of the pointers marks the passage of time and controls the length of night watches.
