9780099502586: Every Move You Make

A young man going off to war tries to make sense of his place in the world he is leaving; a composer's life plays itself out as a complex domestic cantata; an accident on a hunting trip speaks volumes, which its inarticulate victim never could; and a down-to-earth woman stubbornly tries to keep her feet on the ground at Ayers Rock. Malouf's men and women are together but curiously alone, looking for something they seem to have missed, or missed out on, in life. Powerfully rooted in the heat and the dust of the vast Australian continent, this is a heartbreakingly beautiful and richly satisfying collection by a master storyteller, one of the great writers of our time.

Review:

"Rare and luminous talent...an outstanding collection" -- Jem Poster * Guardian * "Contemporary Australia lives and breathes, shudders, groans and even scratches without a trace of inhibition throughout these seven vivid narratives from one of the finest of contemporary writers" * Irish Times * "Graceful and unsettling... Malouf's prose is invariably elegant" -- David Flusfeder * Financial Times * "A master of the incisive, seamless, turns-on-a-sixpence short story...this collection is a jewel" -- Kate Saunders * The Times * "Tender and luminous tales...It is his rich landscapes for which Malouf is most often praised and this collection contains some of the most evocative descriptions of the Australian continent" -- Chitra Ramaswamy * Scotland on Sunday *
