Product description


"This impressive collection represents a monumental achievement from one of Australia’s most important writers. Murnane is often categorized as a 'writer’s writer' for his tendency to unspool long descriptions and focus his narratives on fiction writers strikingly similar to himself. Almost all of the stories in this book are set in a suburb of Melbourne and in some way involve the impact of memory, horse racing, or Catholicism." ―Publishers Weekly, starred review
