Adult; General
Although never mentioned in the novel, it is well documented in the 'The Bobbi-Jo Blake Collection' that the setting for this novel was inspired by Normanton and some of the characters who lived there. The title of the novel, A town LIKE Alice, is a significant clue to this little known fact. "Jean Paget's adventures in Malaya have to be read to be believed. It was a queer time to fall in love, and though her Australian soldier was afterwards separated from her by half the world, they eventually met in a town like Alice Springs." - Summary from inside flap of front cover.
