Summary
Funny, heartbreaking and true; the characters in Rural Dreams are the people we know and grew up with. Some of them might even be us. A girl finds strength in poetry, a football coach ponders obsession, a woman grapples with the fall out of an affair and a mother can't and won't stop swearing. In 'Binky', the character asks, 'who gets the farm?' and in 'Rescue', a backpacker is pulled out of a crocodile swamp. Written through the lens of landscape, Rural Dreams highlights the richness of life on the land and showcases the beauty of lives lived outside city walls. 'Rural Australia is a dangerously neglected part of our national consciousness - Margaret Hickey populates it with stories that are lively, entertaining and authentic.' - Martin Flanagan
