The Drover's Wives : 101 re-tellings of a classic short story Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Henry Lawson's short story The Drover's Wife is an Australian classic that has sparked interpretations on the page, on canvas and on the stage.

But it has never been so thoroughly, or hilariously, reimagined as by Ryan O'Neill, remixing and revising Lawson's masterpiece in 101 different ways.

The variations include a a pop song, a sporting commentary, a 1980s computer game, an insurance claim, a Hollywood movie adaptation, a cryptic crossword and even the selection of paint swatches you can see on this back cover.

Inventive and unexpected, this is laugh-out-loud literature from the author of the award-winning Their Brilliant Careers. Inventive and unexpected, this is laugh-out-loud literature from one of Australia's finest satirists.
