Last Cab to Darwin / Jeremy Sims

Rex is a cab driver who has never left Broken Hill in his life. When he discovers he doesn’t have long to live, he decides to drive through the heart of the country to Darwin, where he’s heard he will be able to die on his own terms. But along the way he discovers that before you can end your life you’ve got to live it; and to live it you’ve got to learn to share it.
