Summary
A Constant Hum grapples with the aftermath of a devastating bushfire with an eye for telling detail. Some of these stories cut to the bone; others are empathetic stories of survival and hope
Summary
Before the bushfires, before the front of flames comes roaring over the hills, the ridges are thick with gums. After the fires, the birds have gone. There is only grey ash and melted metal, the blackened husks of cars. And the lost people, in temporary accommodation on the outskirts of the city, on the TV news in borrowed clothes, or remembered in flyers on a cafe wall. A Constant Hum grapples with the aftermath of disaster with an eye for telling detail. Some of these stories cut to the bone; others are empathetic stories of survival, even hope. All are gripping and beautifully written, heralding the arrival of an important new voice in literary fiction.
