Vernon is an expatriate Australian journalist working in Manhattan for a quality New York daily and Dida is a freelance mobile telephone technician. Muffy is a little white dog, and the world's cutest urban philosopher. When Vernon falls so deeply in love with Dida that he stops going to work to be with her, they could not have predicted his former employers would ask, plead, beg, threaten, kidnap and probably even murder to convince Vernon to return to the workplace. Vernon, Dida and Muffy determine to get to the bottom of this. They encounter dodgy Wall Street transactions, oppressive correspondence, muffled answering machine messages and undertake good twin/bad twin routines in their search for the truth. Through it all Vernon worries about his dwindling Australianness. 'The Blindman's Hat' is Paul Auster with added exuberant silliness, Sara Paretsky stuffed full of red herrings, and HergÚ overcome by lust. "Refreshingly paranoid" - Brian Castro. Winner of the 1996 Australian/Vogel Literary Award.
