Description - Peripheral Vision by Paddy O'Reilly
A teenager on the tram meets an old man claiming to be Jesus Christ. Six young women band together on a night prowl. A Filipino immigrant clashes with his eldest sister, who has brought him to Australia for a better life. And in a future where dogs have risen up against their owners, a mother is alarmed by her adolescent daughter's behaviour. Through such diverse characters, Paddy O'Reilly takes us into the fringes of human nature - our hidden thoughts, our darker impulses and our unspoken tragedies. By turns elegiac and acerbic, but always acutely observed, Peripheral Vision confirms O'Reilly as one of our most inventive and insightful writers. Praise for Paddy O'Reilly 'A writer of real flair.' Sydney Morning Herald 'A significant Australian talent.' Australian 'An observant, lucid, unpredictable writer.' Australian Book Review
