The Drover’s Wives: 99 Reinterpretations of Henry Lawson’s Australian Classic

Ryan O'Neill

Shortlisted for the 2019 Russell Prize for Humour Writing

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 ninety-nine different ways. You’ll be amused, delighted and surprised by a Year 8 essay, a sporting commentary, a pop song, a cento, a dance and many more.

Inventive and unexpected, this is laugh-out-loud literature from one of Australia’s finest satirists.
