At the beginning of her writing journey, Joy Dettman's charming, irascible, melancholy, wisecracking characters appeared in over 20 unique tales, many of which have won awards, many of which have never been published. Now, for the first time, 'Diamonds in the Mud and Other Stories' is the complete collection of Joy Dettman's exquisite short stories. An old coot in a rusty ute picks up a hitchhiker; a neighbour reaches across the language divide to lend a helping hand; a grave digger might just have saved a young man's life; an exhausted farmer's wife lusts after a china cup; Granny Jordan is losing her marbles; and an author is troubled by rats under the floorboards. This anthology will not disappoint the voracious fans of Joy Dettman's distinctive narrative and adroit storytelling.
