Book Review - Leaving Elvis and other stories (UWA Publishing)
Leaving Elvis and other stories is a collection of short stories that follow each other in chronological order. These stories chart the lives and perspectives through three generations of a wheatbelt family starting with Len, freshly returned from WW2, spirit broken. Len’s own tragedy is seamlessly woven through the lives of his family and into future generations. The final story told by his granddaughter both closes the generational circle and yet leaves us with more questions. Michau-Crawford’s writing style feels akin to breathing - the stories, characters and their landscapes are so beautifully drawn, you’ll feel like you know them. A superb read!
