“This is the first collection of Brian James’ short stories, which have already established their author’s reputation as one of the finest writers in this field at the present time. His work is in the best Australian tradition of realism, humour, and vitality. The style has the maturity, the unpretentious simplicity, of the finished literary craftsman, that is rare in contemporary prose.
the stories are mainly of country life and tell with quiet humour and deep insight of men and women on the land and in a small town, with their follies, feuds, festivities and tragedies.”
