Nominally a spy thriller, Stepper is based on the real exploits of pre-war Russian spies operating in Japan. It is an existential study of a spy who, in a world where identity is not a fixed idea, fails to secure his own stable identity.

    

Praise for this book

"A political story, a love story, a tale of espionage and duplicity... Witty, comic and at the same time immeasurably sad, it is written in prose as delicate and illuminating as a Hokusui engraving." - Thea Astley
