Dream Stuff by David Malouf
From the image of a small boy entranced by his mother's GI Escort, yet still hoping for the return of a father 'missing in action', to the portrait of an adult writer trying to piece together a defining image of his late father, these outstanding stories conjure up with sharp intensity the memories and events that make a man.
These powerfully vivid stories by a great writer range over more than a century of Australian life, from green tropical lushness to 'blacksoil country', from scrub and outback to city streets-evoking dark shadows beneath a bright sun, and lives shaped by the ghosts of history and the rhythms of unruly nature.
