The Wild Dogs

A rich and poignant story collection from one of Australia's most sensitive and incisive writers.


Bookmark and Share
In this rich and poignant story collection, Peter Skrzynecki recreates the recent past, when migrants were still 'reffos' or 'New Australians'. Although the settings of these stories are predominantly migrant, the themes clutch at all of us. Here are ways of coping with death, with adolescent sexuality, with the power of knowledge, and the quiet heroism of families. Animals figure symbolically - a red-back spider (in one of the most eerily powerful stories in the collection) and of course 'the wild dogs' of the moving and terrifying title story.
