              It's 1981 and Evie is sixteen. She has left school but can't find work, and her family has just moved into the run-down inner Sydney suburb of Newtown. Noel lives in the adjoining terrace house. He's fifteen, not taking school seriously and fed up with looking after his ancient b...ed-ridden grandmother. As a friendship grows between Evie and Noel, the past is set back in motion, and the events of the 1930s Depression era begin to play out in the high-unemployment times of the early 1980s, and the house again is the centre of the Sydney anti-eviction campaign of 1931. Based on historical fact, meticulously researched, The House that was Eureka is a critically acclaimed novel about a history we all share.

              Amy Witting was a master of the short story, the genre in which she felt 'most at home'. Her subjects-childhood and school, marriage and loneliness, the cruelty of men and women-are rendered in a crisp, understated style, at once compassionate and unsentimental. This new selectio...n of twenty pieces from across five decades includes the acclaimed novella-length 'The Survivors' and the final appearance of Isobel Callaghan from I for Isobel.
