Usually Available in 3-7 Days


Butcher Bird, Geraldine North's collection of 26 short stories, captures universal aspects of the human experience within the peculiar ethos of rural Australia. The author reaches back to her experiences as an isolated, yet carefree and inquisitive child growing up on the family farm during the 1940s and '50s. While they evoke the often-desolate ambiance of this remote region, her fictional representations attain a timeless quality defined by complex characters and well-wrought plots driven by familiar human impulses. Compelling, keenly written, sharply detailed, brightened by wit and sometimes brooding, these tales bring distinct slices of humanity into sharp focus.
