To escape her crumbling life in New York City, Donna Cooper accepts a position as a rural doctor in Queensland Australia. It isn’t long before she encounters Jimmy Jackboy, a stranded aboriginal teen who is unable to complete his initiation into manhood. But what appears to be an accidental meeting may have been orchestrated by the Galah parrot spirit, Jimmy’s ancestral totem. Soon Donna and Jimmy become tied by bonds of circumstance, changing both of their lives forever.

Korman weaves her characters’ voices into a compelling story that examines the role of fate in our lives. Waltzing Jimmy Jackboy guides us on a journey of self-discovery, where faith, family and reality are shaped by the untamed Australian landscape.

WALTZING JIMMY JACKBOY is an extraordinarily beautiful literary walkabout. Jennifer Korman has created a cast of indelible characters, from the American doctor escaping her troubled life, to the young Australian aboriginal Jimmy Jackboy caught between the past and the future, to the astonishing Galah parrot, who takes us into the soul of the outback and its ancient traditions. Through it all, the continent of Australia looms, vast and mysterious. This is an adventure you won’t soon forget... William Haywood Henderson, author of Augusta Locke
