From prize-winning short-story writer Cate Kennedy comes a new
collection to rival her highly acclaimed Dark Roots. In Like a
House on Fire, Kennedy once again takes ordinary lives and dissects

a cleaner in a hospital helps an elderly patient defy doctor's
orders. In 'Cross-Country', a jilted lover manages to misinterpret
her ex's new life. And in 'Ashes', a son accompanies his mother on
a journey to scatter his father's remains, while lifelong
resentments simmer in the background. Cate Kennedy's poignant short
stories find the beauty and tragedy in illness and mortality, life
