"Mr Billing has a large and observant heart, and the natural tension in his writing is the mark of a talent that can only deepen and grow more important as the years go by." The New Yorker

Forbush and the Penguins was Graham Billing's first novel, written after he had spent eighteen months working in Antarctica as a journalist. Subsequently he had five more novels published, including The Slipway and The Chambered Nautilus.
