From one of the most talented and versatile voices in contemporary Australian literature comes this somber, introspective dirge, centered around the discovery of a mysterious, unidentifiable beast. Sonya Hartnett’s Stripes of the Sidestep Wolf follows high school dropout Satchel O’Rye, drifting between jobs as he tries to support his family in the absence of his deadbeat dad. Satchel’s situation begins to change when he discovers an unusual, seemingly canine animal. He develops a friendship with social misfit Chelsea Piper, as the two spend time together pondering the nature of this strange beast. Actress Suzi Dougherty (The Loved Ones, Home and Away ) lends fluid eloquence to this heartrending work of fantastic realism, while nevertheless striking a reflective tone, betraying understated sympathy for the hapless Satchel.
