'These perfectly realised stories … are inflected with the kind of humour reminiscent of Raymond Carver’s dark wit.’ — The Age 'Birch’s subject matter is ordinary life, lit from within with an honesty which makes his characters and their travails achingly familiar.’ — Cate Kennedy
Tony Birch has an eye for life lived at the margins and in Father’s Day he brings the streets of the inner-city to life with compassion and dry humour. But he also focuses on the relationships that connect us all, particularly the emotional lives of fathers and sons. In subtle, understated prose touched with poetry, this new collection of stories cuts deep into the minor joys and tragedies of ordinary Australians.
