Bird Country

Book - 2017
Rate this:
A mother hides her fugitive son in a cockatoo cage as floodwaters rise. A motorcyclist is entranced by a model on a billboard, while trapped in a run-down country pub. A teacher drives his young daughters home across mile after mile of grass plains, unable to tell them what has happened to their mother. A roadhouse cooks longs for the right person to tell about the death of her sister. The things we don't say and the relationships we yearn for hover between the lines of these moving and evocative stories, as do the smells and feel of the mud and grass plains, roads and roadhouses, and the pubs and kitchens of rural Australia. Claire Aman's Bird Country is a song to love and loss, to friendship and betrayal, and of happiness and pain.
