The Yellow House by Emily O’Grady
Our Review…The Yellow House is one of those modern-day gothic Australian reads that captivate and shatter you at the same time.
Set in a harshly desolate rural landscape, the young narrator Cub is reminiscent of a young Scout Finch. Cub along with her twin brother Wally, her older sister Cassie and parents live in the long shadow of an abandoned knackery and the Yellow House over the fence.
Haunting their lives is Grandad Les, no ordinary grandfather; his actions were inspired in part by the very real life Ivan Milat. This splendid novel of the debilitating chains of poverty, family loyalty and betrayal will leave you breathless. A remarkable and exquisitely atmospheric novel.
The Yellow House is the winner of the prestigious Australian-Vogel Literary Award
