After The Fire- A Still Small Voice Evie Wyld (Kindle/Mobi)

From The New Yorker
Frank last visited his family’s shack, on a Queensland beach, as a gas-huffing teen-ager, battered by his mother’s death and his father’s abusive neglect. He returns an alcoholic man, “the bloody feel of some bastard terrible thing swimming inside him,” having lashed out at his girlfriend until she left. The shack has served as a retreat before: for Frank’s grandfather, reeling from the Korean War, and for his father, who holed up there after serving in Vietnam. The stories of these wounded forebears are layered into Frank’s tormented recovery, trauma seeping from one man into the next. Wyld has a feel both for beauty and for the ugliness of inherited pain. The mood is creepy—strange creatures in the sugar cane, grieving neighbors, a missing local girl—and the sentiment is plain: “Sometimes people aren’t all right and that’s just how it is.”
