Product description

Review

‘[An] elegant, intelligent and affecting novel from a writer at the height of her powers.’

Source: The Saturday Paper

‘Blain just gets better and better. The clarity, warmth and precision of Between a Wolf and a Dog brings to mind the formal beauty of an exquisitely cut gemstone. Blain looks at the big questions ― mortality, grief, forgiveness ― through the lens of one family’s everyday struggle to love each other. This portrait of marriage and work, of sisterhood, mothers, and daughters is resolute and clear-eyed; so commanding and beautifully written it made me cry.’

Author: Charlotte Wood, author of The Natural Way of Things

‘Heartfelt, wise, and emotionally intelligent, Between a Wolf and a Dog is a beautifully tender exploration of the complications of family love, self-knowledge, and the struggle for forgiveness.’

Author: Gail Jones, author of A Guide to Berlin

‘What a marvellously clear eye Georgia Blain has for the ways in which we love and harm one another. Whether she is observing a “coconut-ice” grevillea or meditating on everyday consolations and sorrows, Blain is a quietly profound writer and this is a remarkable book.’

Author: Michelle De Kretser

Between a Wolf and a Dog is an elegantly told story describing the ambiguities within human relationships. Each evening, when my children slept, I would enter the world of this book ― coming to know a flawed, courageous, and creative family of characters, as they struggled to be good, to be whole, and finally, to let go.’

Author: Sofie Laguna, author of The Eye of the Sheep

‘[A]n elegant novel, written in lucent and, at times, luminous prose. It is a work of delicately detailed emotion and beautiful balance, and it is so well paced that its narrative is utterly compelling. It is a remarkable portrayal of family relationships, and the complex and often competing desires and sensitivities that drive them, but it is mostly a book about love and forgiveness, and holding on to our good fortune and our loved ones, even and especially in the face of loss. It is heartfelt and resonant, and a remarkable novel that lingers long after its final page.’

Author: Fiona Wright Source: Weekend Australian

‘Blain is a writer of such lucidity and strength that her characters speak, undeniably, for themselves … What make it possible to contain tragedy in words, so that the reader enters into the experience and passes through it, cleansed? The Greek playwrights had their own answers to this question; but the question, I suspect, is far older than their version of it. Each generation of authors must find the right words for writing about death. Part of the reason Between a Wolf and a Dog succeeds so well is that everything in the novel is heartfelt without being in the least sentimental.’

Author: Dorothy Johnston Source: Sydney Morning Herald

‘Picking a favourite Georgia Blain novel is like picking a favourite child … Blain intelligently asks the big questions ― about mortality, grief, forgiveness and how hard it can sometimes be to love those we’re supposed to.’

Source: North and South

‘Captures the elusive moment when it's time to forgive, when it's time to stop fighting.’

Source: Australian Women's Weekly

‘Luminous … Blain creates characters so real that they colonise the mind and become part of the reader’s world well after the end of the novel; her setting ― a single day suffused with rain implacable as tears ― becomes our weather; her children ― particularly the young twins Catherine and Lara ― delight with their lively authenticity.’

Author: Katharine England Source: Adelaide Advertiser
