An astonishing examination of male friendship, set in Australia's wheatbelt.

Western Australia, the wheatbelt. Lew McLeod has been travelling and working with Painter Hayes since he was a boy. Shearing, charcoal burning – whatever comes. Painter made him his first pair of shoes. It’s a hard and uncertain life but it’s the only one he knows. But Lew’s a grown man now. And with this latest job, shearing for John Drysdale and his daughter Clara, everything will change. Stephen Daisley writes in lucid, rippling prose of how things work, and why; of the profound satisfaction in hard work done with care, of love and friendship and the damage that both contain.

‘Some of [Daisley’s] most vivid writing. Here the minutiae of farm life are rendered with respect and sympathy …Moving and brilliant.’
Australian Book Review

'The story has sweep and power and vivid scents and scenes, and will leave you with unforgettable afterimages. English is extraordinary, laughing, weeping, inhabiting wildly disparate characters with complete authority.'
AudioFile Magazine

‘This is a challenging and brave book … [Daisley] writes with a maturity and insight wrought of experience. His writing is at once cruel and gentle, graphically violent, including to animals, yet tender and beautiful.’
Sunday Star Times

‘In Coming Rain this late beginner continues to make his distinguished, solitary way, not least in reclaiming the rural societies of a half century ago, rendered so vividly that they seem keenly of the present, rather than past curiosities.’
The Australian
