"To fall asleep and dream deams that change as quickly as the forms in an unsteady kaleidoscope, and to awaken with a bewildered feeling that you are not yourself but having changed places with some other identity, must be a sensation akin to that I experienced when I opened my eyes in the morning after my first sleep on the diggings."
The Fortunes of Mary Fortune
At the last Crime & Justice Festival way back whenever that was (feels like a hundred years ago), Lucy mentioned this book, and that it was a bit of a rarity. And I was kicking myself as I had seen a copy of it earlier in the bookshop but somebody more awake than me bet me to it.
So a bit of a quest was launched (I do so love a quest), and was lucky enough to track down a copy in a very nice secondhand bookshop in Ballarat - no luck alas with a brand new copy.
Boy I'm glad I did - even if I had to drive from Bendigo to Ballarat in one day!
