Like a House on Fire
From prizewinning short-story writer Cate Kennedy comes a new collection to rival her highly acclaimed Dark Roots.
In Like a House on Fire, Kennedy once again takes ordinary lives and dissects their ironies and injustices and pleasures with her humane eye and wry sense of humour.
In 'Laminex and Mirrors', a young woman working as a cleaner in a hospital helps an elderly patient defy doctor's orders. In 'Cross Country', a jilted lover manages to misinterpret her ex's new life. And in 'Ashes', a son accompanies his mother on a journey to scatter his father's remains, while lifelong resentments simmer in the background.
Cate Kennedy's poignant short stories find the beauty and tragedy in illness and mortality, life and love.
