From the " world-class Australian novelist" ("The New York Times") comes a deft, angular, and highly entertaining collection of stories. " The Seduction of My Sister" tells of the increasingly bizarre events between siblings when a new family moves in across the street, while " Healing" recalls a vanished time when a boy's headlong, innocent rush into certain disaster could be averted by a simple miracle. A man named Huebler decides to photograph everyone alive, and an unassuming piano-tuner is sent to the center of Australia in 1943 to contribute to the war effort. A captivating, piquant collection from a master of the craft.
