After the Fire, A Still Small Voice

Evie Wyld’s first novel tells two stories: of Frank, attempting to rebuild his life in the Australian wilderness, and of his father Leon, the child of European immigrants, who served in Vietnam forty years earlier. Their twin narratives of damage and recovery converge in the savage landscape of Australia’s East coast. ‘Wild and sinister, filled with light and tragedy’, Francesca Segal wrote in the Guardian, ‘this is a sad and lovely novel from a talented new writer.’
