Mutton Birds and Other Birds (Classic Reprint): H. Guthrie-Smith
Wagners Creek, otherwise known as the arse-end of the Earth, is the home of the mutton-bird, the carrion crow, and the remarkable Fin Starling. Son of the local provider of ´´special services´´, Fin is different from other children and soon it becomes clear that he is something of a miracle-worker as he transforms the dirt-poor shantytown into a place of pilgrimage. Elizabeth Stead´s gently comic portrait of Wagners Creek is handled with benevolent grace. Yet beneath the comedy runs an unsettling undercurrent and the suspicion that Fin´s birthplace exists in a parallel universe where different laws operate. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alan King.
