‘THE CRY­ING PLACE’ BY LIA HILLS

Living Now - - Advertiser News & Reviews -

“The Cry­ing Place is a brave & dev­as­tat­ing novel of grief, place & be­long­ing. I was swept up in Hills’ voice & by her sto­ry­telling skills right from the open­ing pages & I wasn’t re­leased back into the world un­til I reached the end. Even then, the novel doesn’t let you go. Its grace, compassion & deep hu­man­ity make you see our coun­try anew. This book is brac­ing & tough, kind & gen­er­ous.” – Chris­tos Tsi­olkas “An im­pres­sive novel of friend­ship & the haunt­ing con­tra­dic­tions at the base of Aus­tralian so­ci­ety.” – Alex Miller A lu­mi­nous novel that takes read­ers into the mys­ter­ies & truths that lie at the heart of Aus­tralia, The Cry­ing Place is about love, coun­try & the var­ied ways in which we grieve. In its un­flinch­ing por­trayal of the bor­der­lands where cul­tures come to­gether, & the past & present over­lap, it speaks of the places & mo­ments that bind us, & the myths that draw us in. And, ul­ti­mately, the ways in which we find our way home.
