David McDougall reintroduces the reader to that most excellent thing: the good yarn. Meet the neighbour with a war history who can’t help interfering with goings-on over the fence, a woman on a train who’ll go to any lengths to clear her student debt, a bunch of mates on a hunting trip who fear dire consequences after shooting a fantail, and a retired husband whose wife irons his shorts for Valentine’s Day and leaves him perplexed about how to return the favour. As for the Abyssinian mountain lion, is there even such a thing? These are stories of humour and melancholy, love and vice. Perfect with a beer on a winter’s night, more stimulating than the five-minute quiz with a morning coffee. Read one and be hooked.
