Cover to Cover Ep 06 with Stephen Daisley17 Sep 15

Meri Fatin speaks with WA writer Stephen Daisley about his latest novel, "Coming Rain" (Text Publishing), his approach to writing and how it felt to win the Prime Minister's Prize for Fiction.

Coming Rain is a beautiful novel that immerses the reader in rural life on the dry margins of the WA wheat belt in the 1950’s. The plot charts the harsh lives of two shearers, young Lew and the gnarled Painter who has taken care of Lew for years. Intersecting with the lives of the shearers is a desperate and cunning pregnant dingo, brought vividly to life. Daisley’s tale describes in exquisite, tense prose shearing, killing, and lives dependent on country. There are moments of aching tenderness and heroism that will enrapture readers to the very end.
