The story follows Elmer Bergan at four stages of her life – when she is eight, 18, 28 and 38 – all told in her own voice and in the first person. As she lives through the events of her... More > first thirty years, events, memories, thoughts come in and out of her consciousness at different stages like a river that flows from one experience to the next and back again. Rather than this being a story about the death of a child, it is about obsession, the need for answers when questions are all you have left. It is a character study of childhood, both in Elmer's life and in her grandparents whose relationship means they act with one another like children; her mother Laura who can't cope with motherhood; her father who's extra-curricular relationship is at odds with the family he has help to create and destroy. The novel is bleak at times but touches on the surreal nature of childhood, as well as being funny, dark and political.< Less
Raining Cats and Dogs By L. M. Warren
eBook (ePub): $0.00
Raining Cats and Dogs is exactly what you fear: an anthropomorphic comedy-drama starring dogs, with issues of dog morality, dog existentialism, and lots of dog-on-dog hate. Imagine if Fyodor... More > Dostoyevsky went mad and wrote a book with an all dog-cast, or if George Orwell just gave up trying to send a message and decided to troll humanity with a dog murder mystery. That’s exactly what Raining Cats and Dogs is, and it’s Warren’s own distinctive brand of tragic parody, with sex, death, lost love and intellectual garble the likes of which would make Lassie whine or Old Yeller want to be put down. This experimental novel was written in the spirit of Animal Farm and The Brothers Karamazov, with a bit of South Park-style bite for the new age. Whereas most people imagine dogs living in a perfect little society of mutual respect, G-rated bickering, and lots of tongue-wagging, we all know the truth: they are sick, perverted and violent, every bit evil as man himself.< Less

Beware! Do not read this book unless you are mentally stable and physically fit. The author and publisher accept no responsibility for medical bills relating to ruptured spleens, incontinent bladders... More > or psychiatric disorders arising as a result of ingesting the contents of these pages. This is not a novel, it is a black comedy, a series of stories with a common backdrop, the streets and swamps of Wudgi Crossing. This tiny South Australian town may be searched for unstintingly through the pages of any Gazetteer, the Mobil Series of South Australian Maps, or the murky depths of Arabella Silkenshanks hot nourishing broth. It will not be found. The South Australian Government has always blamed Wudgi Crossing on Victoria, or New South Wales, anyone but the real culprits who were Mick McGurk and his mate Jack Turnip, the latter of whom has a statue to his memory, sitting in a horse trough with a bucket on his head. So you can see what you’re letting yourself in for....< Less
