Overview

Description
'the sea is not yet full' is the story of Sep, an Australian writer roaring through flickering life, love and despair. It's the story of Fremantle, Western Australia, and its brilliance and squalor. It's incandescent. It's Beat. It's a punch in the gut. Thrown in with a listless generation, Sep doesn't understand his life or his reasons. Where is all he once knew? Sep will risk it all for a spark. Loss. Lust. Literature. Love. Limbo. “Squalid and brilliant. It reads to me like James Joyce getting blind drunk with Bret Easton Ellis. I don’t recall a novel which has captured the breadth and depth of the city - from freeway to Fremantle, river to beach - with such scope and energy. It is a blooded, passionately despairing portrait, a testament not just to passion but to talent." – Nathan Hobby “a transgressive fever dream, an intense assaultive descent into the horrors of self." “..touches on human emotion like few have been capable of achieving. Nothing is censored and it is refreshingly authentic. There is so much about this book that is universal. It does something few authors have been able to do - move me to tears." “There is a clash occurring in the sea is not yet full, between the world of twentieth century European and American literature and twenty-first century Western Australia, with its vacuousness and nihilism. This is an age after history is finished, Deceglie seems to be suggesting. It is a time when there’s nothing left to tell. And yet our small lives flicker on.”
