AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'PR whizz Cassandra Daley isn't afraid of using all the dirty tricks of the trade to spin a story her way. A glamorous city-slicker, she has never given much thought to wildlife until she humiliatingly loses a PR war with a potoroo. Sacked and disgraced, she flees the city for an anonymous bolt-hole. But small-town Beechville has other plans for her. Feral pigs, a snake in the dunny, a philosopher frog and a town with a secret--could things get worse? Add one man who has the sexiest way with maps she's ever seen and they soon do. Her best friend Jessica thinks she's been brain-washed by some kind of rural cult, and Jessica could be right. Can Cassandra reinvent herself or will she always be a liar bird?' (Trove record)

Works about this Work

Polar Bears and Evil Scientists : Romance, Comedy and Climate Change Lisa Walker , 2014 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australasian Journal of Popular Culture , September vol. 3 no. 3 2014; (p. 363-374)
'Climate change has been called the most boring subject the science world has ever had to present. Despite media stunts such as nude lie-ins to draw attention to the issue, recent polls show that the urgency of public opinion in relation to climate change has waned. This article argues that popular culture such as genre fiction can be an important communicative device in responding to climate change. It examines how a climate change theme can be developed in fiction and why romance and, in particular, romantic comedy, may be a suitable genre to make this issue relevant to the reader by connecting a global issue to its local effects. Climate change poses particular challenges to an author. My novel-in-progress, Melt (2013), is used as a case study of how these challenges may be met.' (Publication abstract)
