David Malouf's imagination inhabits shocking violence, quick humour, appealing warmth and harsh cruelty with equal intensity. This is a comprehensive compilation of David's shorter work. Stories are set in the hardscrabble Australian interior and coastal enclaves; others are set in Australia's past.
