9781921274107: The Boatbuilder's Nose

On rare occasions, an injury can give you capabilities you never had before - and change your life in unexpected ways. Derek Saddler is a tradesman - a boatbuilder - hard talking and hard working; so hard working, in fact, that his family life is falling apart. Then he has a boat-yard accident. He awakes in hospital with a sore head, and something else...what appears to be a condition known as 'hyperosmia', an enhanced sense of smell. But in Derek's case the enhancement is of a kind that no one has ever seen before, and the consequences for him and those close to him are profound.

From the Publisher:

The Boatbuilder's Nose is Colin Macpherson's third novel (the others being The Tide Turners and The Holy Well) whereby he ventures in yet another direction - reflecting his ongoing compulsion to travel down new literary paths. This one - as with the others - is sure to intrigue those who follow his work as well as those who are newly attracted to it.

Review:

It is written in an easy, dare I say 'blokey' manner...simply a good story with down-to-earth characters...an enjoyable novel that can be enjoyed at face value. -- Peter C. Pugsley in: The Independent Weekly

The main character (Derek Saddler) is constantly distracted by his new talent and, besides hampering his social interactions, it brings out some primitive drives as well. In a word: intriguing. --Mary Vernon in: Townsville Bulletin

...I enjoyed his first two novels immensely, and I haven't been disappointed with this new one. If you read it, I think you'll ponder it. And, as the back cover states, 'It might also help you to understand your dog more'. --John Watson in: Australian Amateur Boatbuilder
