ISBN: 0091839297 Global Overview for this book
2 journalers for this copy...
I know it's a disgrace ... Squeak has held me personally responsible. It does not reflect well on her corporate image to have such disreputable people as myself and Phyllis in her past, but I've made a deal with her that I won't breathe a word to anyone about what went on ...
From the scandalous, wry and blackly comic, to the reflective and deeply moving, these stories from the author of Tiger Country and Blood Songs explore the lives of families, friends and rivals with insight, economy and grace.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
This book has been to Melbourne and Brisbane, and always made it home again - unfinished.
But, today we finally finished and released this while on a mega-Pokemon walk.
My memory is hazy of the earlier stories in the book... It's been a while, but I do remember loving 'The Feminist' and the central character of Aunty Min.
There was a time when I thought this book was actually a memoir, but I think it was the story set in an Outback pub with the Indigenous Aunty I realised my mistake.
A great little snappy read of humourous short stories. One or two were sad and moving (the mentally unwell adult son), but over all, this was a great collection and I am pleased I finally released it back into the world for another reader to find.
Thank you, Catsalive.
