This collection of interlocking stories chronicles all that life has to offer, both good and bad, in a Western Australian coastal town. They are spare, emotional vignettes that focus on choices and the consequences that come from them. Two narrators, Humphrey Bower and Caroline Lee (both Australian), guide us expertly through this maze of humanity. Their voices, alternating haphazardly throughout the stories, are strong, clear, and emotional without being overwrought or dramatic. Bower exudes both the vigor of the Aussie male and the fragility that undercuts it. Lee's characters project the toughness they need to survive but also the tenderness they wish Bower's males would exhibit. Their readings complement and expand the text, making this a unique listening experience. R.I.G. 2007 Audies Award Finalist © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
