A fun story of rural life in Australia- no glitz or glamour

Just could not get into this story . Tried , but after a few chapters ( which is as far as I will give a book to grab my interest ) gave up on it . Too many other good books to read !

A humorous, affection look at small-country life. An engaging main character and a self-deprecating narration- just lovely.

I want to sit down and have a beer with acerbic Loretta Boskovic, and I love that the crappy Australian outback town she lives in is not magically cozy. But it's hers, and she loves it, like she does her kids and her neighbors and her ex-husband. So funny, but also poignant and with an ending that made me sit up and cheer like a weirdo.

Had good reviews on Goodreads. How many people can read small print? compared to an e-book where any vision can be adjusted.
