BOOKSELLER PICK

Barking Dogs by Rebekah Clarkson

Written as a series of interlinked stories, this finely-woven book is from a writer to watch! Mount Barker, up behind Adelaide, is changing from rural idyll to suburbia. Over the course of the novel, this metamorphosis is intricately plotted and shown through the lives of its residents. It starts with the death of the daughter of the richest inhabitants of the town, and then follows the try-hards and failed workers, the people with dreams slowly eroded by life and lack of opportunity, the fearful, the luckless and the pushed-too-fars. The prose is lucid and compelling, restrained and thoughtful, with moments of beauty and revelation and always great empathy. A brilliant debut. Lindy Jones
