Southern Cross the Dog

(2013)
A novel by

 

"An incredibly daring and powerful debut. Not only does Bill Cheng set the language on fire...he creates a whole new territory of storytelling."
Colum McCann


When the Great Flood of 1927 devastates Mississippi, eight-year-old Robert Chatham loses everything.

Robert's adventures in the brooding swamplands - from hard labour to imprisonment to thwarted love - are full of courage, danger and heartbreak. This is story of how a small, hurt boy becomes a tough, young man: forced to choose between the lure of the future and the claims of his past.

Set against one of the great American landscapes, Southern Cross the Dog is a mesmerizing and savagely beautiful novel. It marks the arrival of Bill Cheng as a writer of astonishing gifts.
