A review of The Gun Shearer from the CUT team....

“Thirty years ago and it was still as sharp as razor wire.” The past is a constant companion to Oriel, the protagonist of Clare Chandler’s earthy short story set among the sheep shearers working on a remote New South Wales ranch. A story of memories held and futures still to be grasped.
