Beschreibung des Verlags
Henry Lawson’s short story 'The Drover’s Wife' is an Australian classic that has sparked interpretations on the page, on canvas and on the stage. But it has never been so thoroughly, or hilariously, reimagined as by Ryan O’Neill, remixing and revising Lawson’s masterpiece in 101 different ways.
The variations include a pop song, a sporting commentary, a 1980s computer game, an insurance claim, a Hollywood movie adaptation, a cryptic crossword and even a selection of paint swatches.
Inventive and unexpected, this is laugh-out-loud literature from the author of the award-winning Their Brilliant Careers.
