Sometimes it takes the most trying circumstances to achieve extraordinary results. Teacher Peter Moon is hesitating at one of life's crossroads. While dithering whether he should give up his increasingly frustrating job in education for one in the ‘real world', he is asked to lead a school camping trip. But little could he foresee how this seemingly innocent outing would change lives forever. Debut novel from Jon Cocks, Duty of Care, is a satirical look at how everyday events can spin in the most unexpected directions. Think of Lord of the Flies meeting the ridiculousness of today's school reform and you'll have insight into what Cocks achieves in this fast-paced, wry and poignant read.
Jon Cocks is a long-serving Drama and English teacher. Other than an enduring love affair with wife Lilit, his passions include books, Australian football, the Adelaide Crows, Australian cricket, theatre, movies and wine. He has an adult son, Jordan. He lives with Lilit in the Adelaide Hills.
