Longlisted ABIA Literary Fiction Book of the Year 2020

Tarantino meets Deadwood in this full-throttle drama of our colonial past, written by the indomitable Leah Purcell.

The Drover's Wife is utterly authentic, brilliantly plotted, thoroughly harrowing and entirely of our times exploring race, gender, violence and inheritance. Leah Purcell’s play caused a sensation on performance and won the NSW Premier’s Book of the Year award and now she is expanding the script to write a novel that while still ‘Tarantino meets Deadwood’ is also so much more. In the titular character the drover’s wife, Purcell has created a figure who is as resonant and significant as Ned Kelly. Lawson’s original short story is re-imagined vividly to portray the drover’s heroic wife as a righteous avenger – on behalf of herself, her children and her race – in a savage male world. A taut thriller of our pioneering past, The Drover's Wife is full of fury and power and has a black sting to the tail, reaching from our nation's settled infancy into our complicated present.

'The most important new Australian play written this year.'
