The Lucky Galah by Tracy Sorensen
Tracy Sorensen, an Australian academic, journalist and film-maker has penned a delightfully fresh novel centred around the upcoming Apollo moon landing in the 1960’s remote West Australian town of Port Badminton and the present day.
This is a time of both innocence and great societal change that is narrated with great humour through the eyes of Lucky, a rescued Pink Galah.
While you have to suspend disbelief, Sorensen creates a remarkably likeable character in our larrikin parrot who has a keen insight into the complexities of the town characters, in particular the mystery surrounding Evan Johnson and his beautiful wife, Linda.
A wonderfully warm and cleverly drawn novel. Review by Nicole @ Great Escape Books
