Dark As Last Night

Audiobook
Dark as Last Night confirms, once again, that Tony Birch is a master of the short story. These exceptional stories capture the importance of human connection at pivotal moments in our lives, whether those occur because of the loss of a loved one or the uncertainties of childhood. In this collection we witness a young girl struggling to protect her mother from her father's violence, two teenagers clumsily getting to know one another by way of a shared love of music, and a man mourning the death of his younger brother, while beset by memories and regrets from their past. Throughout this powerful collection, Birch's concern for the humanity of those who are often marginalised or overlooked shines bright. 'More like Chekhov than Carver...Birch succeeds in making the unremarkable remarkable, in showing that all lives have their victories, no matter how small.' THE AUSTRALIAN
