It'll all be okay, my mother said, and I remember the way her familiar face scrunched, afterwards - reflected back at me, in the fogged bathroom mirror, when she thought I couldn't see.

Before the fire - before the front of flames roars over the hills-the ridge is thick with gums. After the fire, all the birds have gone. There is only ash and melted metal, the blackened husks of cars. And the lost people: on the TV news in borrowed clothes, in temporary accommodation on the outskirts of the city, or remembered in small offerings outside the town hall.

A Constant Hum grapples with the aftermath of bushfire with an eye for the telling detail. Some of these stories cut to the bone; others are empathetic tales of survival, even hope. All are gripping and stunningly written, heralding the arrival of a vital new voice in Australian fiction.
