The Glad Shout

Alice Robinson

Winner of the Readings Prize for New Australian Fiction 2019

After a catastrophic storm destroys Melbourne, Isobel flees to higher ground with her husband and young daughter. Food and supplies run low, panic sets in and still no help arrives. To protect her daughter, Isobel must take drastic action.

The Glad Shout is an extraordinary novel of rare depth and texture. Told in a starkly visual and compelling narrative, this is a deeply moving homage to motherhood and the struggles faced by women in difficult times.

‘This book brought home the realities of the climate crisis to me so vividly that I felt compelled to take action in my own life. The Glad Shout demonstrates the power of fiction to create real change.’ - Mark Rubbo, Readings' Managing Director
