Summary Nhill is a short story that gently echoes a sense of anxiety. The very title  suggests emptiness and is a gentle exploration of a middle-class white couple's sense of not belonging to this landscape. Although they travel to the centre of the Little Dessert of western Victoria, it's 'heart of salt', everything in this gorgeous haze of a story of conspires to convey a sense of fragility and unreality.
