The Conversations at Curlow Creek (1996)
by David Malouf
Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679779051, Paperback)It is only natural for our eyes to wander into the circumstances of others and either count our blessings or rail at the injustice of fate. How we deal with the fate dealt us is the subject of David Malouf's shadowy novel. Having grown up in the same household, but under different circumstances, two foster-brothers respond to fate in radically different ways and with radically different results. While one takes kismet under his horsewhip, the other dares not rebel. This haunting replay of Greek tragedy will reverberate in your mind long after the last page is turned, for as with these men, fate is our habitat.

The year is 1827, and in a remote hut on the high plains of New South Wales, two strangers spend the night in talk. One is a convict due to be hanged at dawn, the other is a policeman charged with supervising the execution.
