This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
Memorable short stories by Cate Kennedy, Tim Winton, David Malouf and many more of Australia's best contemporary writers. Bonding, battling, breaking, the stories in this engrossing collection shed high and lowlights on families from every angle. Heroic mothers, estranged fathers, resentful siblings, children losing their innocence - even a family ghost or two. Some of Australia's finest writers - and some who should be better known - explore the whole range of family life, from the happy to the hopeless, in stories that Barry Oakley has collected with one criterion only: vitality.
