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. earlier than every person in his relations used to be killed in a freak rollover, Fox grew melons and counted stars and enjoyed taking part in his guitar. Now, his existence has develop into a “project of forgetting.” now not till he meets Georgie Jutland, the spouse of White Point’s such a lot filthy rich 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 center, nature is rarely silent. bold and completely calibrated, Dirt Music resonates with suspense, emotion, and undying truths.
