Melissa Bruce / Picnic at Mount Disappointment

  • Melissa Bruce / Picnic at Mount Disappointment
In this wise, witty and moving story, fifteen-year-old Lucy arrives from inner-city Melbourne to live on a farm in the early 1980s. Wandong hosts the second largest truck and country music festival in the southern hemisphere…and nothing else.
‘It is rare to find a story that takes us into that liminal territory of adolescence with such force and such heart. Desire, disappointment, betrayal and forgiveness written in libretto, an ode to the tumult of coming of age.’ - Gabrielle Carey, co-author, Puberty Blues
'…charmed in a matter of stanzas… Surprising character development, witty and original observations, honest representation of a prickly teen trying to find her place between worlds.' - Woollahra Digital Literary Awards judges
Winner, Fiction, Woollahra Digital Literary Awards 2017
