Description - Dark As Last Night by Tony Birch
A masterful new story collection from award-winning Indigenous writer Tony Birch.
Dark as Last Night confirms, once again, that Tony Birch is a master of the short story. These exceptional stories capture the importance of human connection at pivotal moments in our lives, whether those occur because of the loss of a loved one or the uncertainties of childhood. In this collection we witness a young girl struggling to protect her mother from her father's violence, two teenagers clumsily getting to know one another by way of a shared love of music, and a man mourning the death of his younger brother, while beset by memories and regrets from their shared past.
Throughout this powerful collection, Birch's concern for the humanity of those who are often marginalised or overlooked shines bright.
'Tony Birch writes short stories better than pretty much anyone at work in Australia today.' Stephen Romei, The Australian
