Set within the dramatic panorama of Western Australia, Dirt Music tells the tale of Luther Fox, a damaged guy who makes his dwelling as an unlawful fisherman—a shamateur. prior to each person in his family members used to be killed in a freak rollover, Fox grew melons and counted stars and enjoyed taking part in his guitar. Now, his lifestyles has develop into a “project of forgetting.” no longer till he meets Georgie Jutland, the spouse of White Point’s so much wealthy fisherman, does Fox start to dream back and listen to the airborne dirt and dust music—“anything you could play on a verandah or porch,” he tells Georgie, “without electricity.” just like the beat of a barren middle, nature is rarely silent. formidable and completely calibrated, Dirt Music resonates with suspense, emotion, and undying truths.
