Summary
A man who never sleeps takes a cross-continent train journey into landscape and memory. A gregarious woman and a reclusive man move to an Irish village where history and tradition (the famine pit nearby, the festival of Halloween) enact their dark forces. In an Australian town dying from the encroachment of salinity, a young girl attempts to bring life to a dead dog. Whether documenting love or horror -- or finding quotidian absurdities in Australia or the world -- the powerful stories in 'Crow's breath' capture the precariousness of everything we most value with unsettling tenderness and beauty
