Summary

"'To make stories look and sound so heartbreakingly real you need an unflinching eye and a compassionate ear and Tony Birch knows just what details are going to go straight to his reader's heart. Loss, memory, and the invisible ties that bind -Birch's subject matter is ordinary life, lit from within with an honesty which makes his characters and their travails achingly familiar.' Cate Kennedy"--Back cover.

These short stories cut deep into the flesh of Australian society, revealing the minor tragedies and joys of ordinary people. At their heart is a love of life and resilience against violence and loss.

Subjects Daily life.  |  Literature and stories - Fiction.  |  Family.  |  Melbourne (Vic SJ55-05)
