Book for October 2017:

The wacky manThis month we are reading Lyn G. Farrell’s ‘The Wacky Man‘, winner of the Luke Bitmead Bursary Award.

Amanda secludes herself in her bedroom, no longer willing to face the outside world. Gradually, she pieces together the story of her life: her brothers have had to abandon her, her mother scarcely talks to her, and the Wacky Man could return any day to burn the house down. Just like he promised.

As her family disintegrates, Amanda hopes for a better future, a way out from the violence and fear that has consumed her childhood. But can she cling to her sanity, before insanity itself is her only means of escape?

Book. English. General.
