The Drover's Wives

Author(s): O'Neill , Ryan

Australian Fiction

The new book from the winner of the 2017 Prime Ministers Literary award for fiction.

Henry Lawson’s short story ‘The Drover’s Wife’ is an Australian classic that has sparked interpretations on the page, on canvas and on the stage. But it has never been so thoroughly, or hilariously, reimagined as by Ryan O’Neill, remixing and revising Lawson’s masterpiece in 99 different ways.

You’ll be amused, delighted and surprised by a Year 8 essay, a sporting commentary, a pop song, a Hollywood movie adaptation and many more.

Inventive and unexpected, this is laugh-out-loud literature from one of Australia’s finest satirists.
