The blog for books and movies

A collection of prize-winning stories by Cate Kennedy which delivers a mesmerizing story collection that travels to the deepest depths of the human psyche. In these sublimely sophisticated and compulsively readable tales, Kennedy opens up worlds of finely observed detail to explore the collision between simmering inner lives and the cold outside world. Her stories are populated by people on the brink: a woman floundering with her own loss and emotional immobility as her lover lies in a coma; a neglected wife who cannot convince her husband of the truth about his two shamelessly libidinous friends; or a married woman realizes that her too-tight wedding ring isn’t the only thing that’s stuck in her relationship.

  1. In literature class, we studied the book Dark Roots, written by Cate Kennedy. Its written by an Australian author. ts a book filled with short stories that explore many themes such as love, family, insecurities, lust, loneliness, ect. Each story is unique and different in their own way, and the tense, characters and themes vary. I would recommend this novel for high school aged students in year 11 or older. I would rate it 8/10.
