After the Fire, A Still Small Voice intertwines the story of fathers and sons, their wars and the things they never know about each other. It's about the things men can't say out loud and the taut silence that fills up the empty space. The story is set in eastern Australia with its dark trees and blinding light, where the land is old but its wounds are still wet. In towns lost in the bush, Christian fundamentalism settles on a sleepy meat-eating, meat-farming community who chose to forget the legacy of war and the conflicts between people. Leon and his parents settled there to escape the old wars of Europe, but they find new wars, and eternal tribal divisions. In the fall out from Vietnam, Leon thinks he might be able to make a new life with his woman, make a baby, live by the sea in a small shack. His son Frank thinks he can put his bad memories of his father behind him.But something watches from the cold shade of the teeming bush.
