Description - Bloke by Bruce Pascoe

Jim Bloke is your typical Aussie, sort of. Being an orphan, he's done it tough in the past, but he knows how to take care of himself and he has an affinity with life's important things. So when he takes a job as a sea-urchin diver on a stretch of coastal paradise, he's right at home with the morwong, pearl perch and butterfish. He's less at home with the people - apart from the woman who works as his deckhand - since the industry's crookeder than your average banker. And because Bloke's already done a season in the big gym, he makes a perfect fall guy when things go wrong. That sends him running again, by a roundabout way into the arms of his real family. But Jim's not sure that's where he wants to be. He wants love and that's hard, he wants his identity and that's even harder. Bloke is an achingly funny novel about coming to terms with who you are, where you belong, who you love.
