‘Powerful stories that confront Black Saturday fires and their legacy’
’This collection writes the Black Saturday Fires into Australian literature. It will hold a different place for all of us. For those who have experienced fires, this may be a small recognition of what has come after. For those who have not, this is a means to understand the enduring impact of bushfire.’
‘Told mostly from the perspective of women, or concerning the lives of women, A Constant Hum shows Bishop’s keen eye for observation.’
