AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Night Animals is about people on the edge, threatened by the collapse of their visions, with only the night as witness: the local butcher whose business booms mysteriously; the whites whose scheme involves spiked flour; a tart and a fool who meet in a pub and find solidarity; a man inspired by the brilliance of a tropical parrot. Whatever the setting, these stories ring with the clarity of the bush in the night, the haunting cry of the boo-book owl.' (Source: Back cover)
