Book two of my The Women’s
Prize for Fiction
Mateship With Birds
This is one of the books that made me glad that I broke my New Year’s resolution and read the Women’s Fiction Prize Longlist. This book centres on the lives of several characters who are living together in a small rural community. In small intricate poetic intimate passages, this work explores the lives of this group of individuals, creating a weave of; past, present and future lives. This is a rural world and the lives of animals are stitched into the weave, forming a background to the lives of the family. Nature writing, whether in the form of; nature diaries, beautiful descriptions of the animals that surround them, or wonderfully evocative descriptions of the weather, bring this book to life. This book explores sexuality; in its many forms, with its many complications and many beauties; creating a small, but wonderfully drawn sketch of rural life
