It is 1974 in the California town of Santa Clarinda. With the women’s movement beginning to erupt all around her, Clara Doherty becomes the administrator of the university’s fledgling Women’s Centre. Neil Norman, 18 years old, is pumping gas and dealing drugs, in Santa Clarinda. A customer gives Neil a gun for drugs and Neil exults in his newfound power – an unimagined power that can make his most cherished fantasies real. Marti McDavid is a new divorcĂ©e, new to the women’s movement, new to her love for Clara. She is not new to drugs. She is a customer of Neil’s. Young women vanish from the streets of Santa Clarinda. And the lives of Clara, Marti and Neil explode in the events that transform their lives and galvanise the entire city. You will not forget Patricia A. Murphy’s complex, riveting portrait of Neil Norman. You will not forget WE WALK THE BACK OF THE TIGER.
