From my blog Published by the utterly marvellous folks at Fox, Finch and Tepper, this is a stunning novel, which frankly had turned me into an emotional wreck by the end. Macauley takes temporary jobs he finds as he walks between the towns of New South Wales. He is used to life on the road, camping and walking and hard labour. The Shiralee of the title, is Buster, his four year old daughter he took from his estranged wife. The pair are on the road together, and Buster's childlike view of the world, and complete trust in her father helps very slowly close the distance between them. B
