Overview

Beetle Creek by Jim Parsons, Bob Ellis

The Bournley's of Beetle Creek - you'll love 'em ... but you'll be so glad they're not your family.
DAD has a philosophical bent, steals the odd sheep and scrounges for choice items at the local garbage dump
MUM judges the annual CWA scone-making contest, protects her brood fiercely, and handles herself well in a street fight
DENNY, aged 7, traps rats on the bedroom window sill and does a nice little sideline in blackmail
LUCY, aged 12, is a spooky recluse who foretells the future of each family member
MARCIE, aged 15, discovers lust in the dust and never looks back
DAVO, aged 16, the Beetle Creek Casanova, is no stranger to hard yakka or sexual benevolence
UNCLE WALLY is fresh out of jail ...
and JACK is writing it all down!

This rollicking tale in the traditional Australian bush yarn genre is definitely NOT for children, as it has adult themes. It is set in the Aussie bush - in a small fictional village in northern New South Wales in the 1950s.
