The Dead Aviatrix: Eight Short Stories
In prose that sparkles with wit, shocks with insight, and beguiles with the air of legend, these eight stories take the reader from post-apocalyptic Tasmania to the tragedy of surrogate pregnancy in the 1950s. Loss of species, the whims of publishers, the question of Islam in regional Australia - these are among the subjects Carmel Bird addresses in her characteristic probing style.
