AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Albert Cutts is a tree feller. A fella who cuts down trees. Fog is a fox cub raised by a dingo. He's called a dox because people are suspicious of foxes and Albert Cutts owns the dingo and now the dox. Albert is a bushman and lives a remote life surrounded by animals and birds. All goes well until Albert has an accident ... This is a story of courage, acceptance and respect. It is reminiscent of the gentle story-telling style of Australian author Alan Marshall (I can jump puddles). The dialogue is finely crafted and Indigenous cultural knowledge and awareness are seamlessly integrated into the story' (Libraries Australia).

— Review of Fog a Dox Bruce Pascoe 2012 single work novel

'‘Nan, will you read to me before I go to sleep?’ And I wonder what the choice will be. When I have read before at bedtime to my granddaughter, she has handed me a book from her collection. It may have been read to her previously by her mother or it may be one she has read to herself but is still a ‘good read’. Most of these stories are so different to those I read 74 years ago as an 11 year old — novels by LM Montgomery and Louisa M Alcott, Girls’ Own Annual Stories etc.'  (Introduction)
