Wednesday 3rd April, Past the Shallows by Favel Parret (chosen by Je)

  • Set in Tasmania
  • A powerful tale
  • Winner of 2012 Miles Franklin award
  • Writing concise … keeps you turning the pages ….
  • Easily read …. Impact hits you sharply …. 
  • Descriptions beautiful, yet simple and elegant
  • Beautiful bond between the brothers – love, loss
  • Characters will be remembered for a long time after

The actions of a couple of the characters were analysed by the group and different interpretations arose.  Not much can be said here without giving away the contents of the tale.  Let’s just say that to a certain extent, it turned into a mystery/thriller for one member of the group …. And the possibility was quite valid.  We have questions for the author!
