Product description

Review

'Daniel Davis Wood’s Gothic-tinted family history fulfils two objectives: shedding light on a dark past, and exploring intellectual and aesthetic problems that the writing of such a story might create. [Blood and Bone] is grounded in factual material and Wood has filled the gaps with imagined scenes and conversations, but the tale is made seamless by a tight structure and a hypnotic style that seems to owe something to the work of Gerald Murnane.' Kerryn Goldsworthy, The Sydney Morning Herald

Product Description

Winner of the 2014 Viva La Novella Prize

With the death of her mother, eleven-year-old Abigail must learn to fend for herself against the cruel stewardship of her father. At war with the local
Aboriginals and intent on staking his claim on the land at any cost, what occurs between the two is a stunning powerplay that exposes the limits of the human imagination.

Inhabiting the speculative peripheries of the historical record, Blood and Bone is an uncompromising exploration of Australia’s dark history and its legacy.

Following on from 2013’s successful winner, Midnight Blue and Endlessly Tall by Jane Jervis-Read, Seizure’s Viva La Novella competition is back! This initiative is unique in its support of writers and editors alike. Four talented editors each selected a manuscript to work on from a pool of over 150 entries. The winning authors were announced at the Emerging Writer’s Festival in Melbourne in June 2014.
