From one of Granta's New Voices of 2008: a stunningly accomplished debut novel, set in Australia, about the ineffable ties between fathers and sons-about the wars they fight between themselves and with others, and about the things they choose not to know about one another or about themselves.

Frank has driven furiously out of Canberra to a shack by the ocean that he last visited as a teenager. He's desperate to put certain painful memories behind him - including the turbulent departure of the woman he loves - and to be alone. But solitude isn't easy to come by in a small town, and the past refuses to lie quiet.

Forty years earlier, Leon returns to Australia from fighting in Vietnam, a broken man no longer able to live with his wife and child, tragically carrying on a family tradition: his father had been similarly torn apart - their home life destroyed - by his experiences in the Korean War.

As the novel unfurls, as these two narratives weave around each other, we learn how Frank and Leon are both connected and perhaps destined to remain separate. Evie Wyld - writing in a voice as fierce as it is fresh - folds their stories into a lushly described background, a landscape both comforting and unforgiving. After the Fire, a Still Small Voice is the work of a thrilling new talent.
