Editorial Reviews


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 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.

From the Back Cover

"Outstanding...Malouf at his absolute best." — The Observer

"Maloufs stories are like riptides...his first few lines pool up to readers with calm ease and grace before hurling them headlong into the dark heart of his vision." — National Post

"One and all, these masterful stories are such stuff as dreams are made of." — Kirkus Reviews

"In this collection&the dreamlike, almost metaphysical qualities of the land are simply part of the overwhelming strangeness." — The Toronto Star --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

What stuff are Dreams made of? Memories, desires, fears. Dreams are one’s private reality. Malouf conjures stories out his dream world, transforming the prosaic into the poetic. I wish I could write so wonderfully.

Format: Paperback
This is a book I would like to erase from my memory. It's pure mediocrity astounds me. The stories are obviously supposed to be deep and emotional and moving *tear* but they fail abysmally. They are, to a man, a flop. Pointless, boring, inane.
