Dream Stuff : Ranging across the breadth of the Australian continent and a century of its history, David Malouf gives us some of his finest writing to date. A small boy grows close to his mother's GI boyfriend while still waiting for his MIA father to return; a man is the victim of a nightmare encounter on a dark street; a prostitute, a 'comfort girl' for American troops, looks for some comfort of her own. Tender, warm and often shocking, this is a truly unforgettable collection.
