Author(s): Vivienne Kelly

Fiction - Contemporary

Isabel Weaving is pining for her second husband, the charismatic Max, but he is no longer around. She adores her beloved granddaughter, Sophie, and her distant son, Dominic. But she views the rest of her family (placid daughter, Kate, mild-mannered first husband, Steve, bossy big sister, Zoe) with withering distaste. Cooee is Vivienne Kelly's debut novel, originally published in 2008-a story full of wit, dark humour and unexpected twists and turns.

'I absolutely loved Cooee by Vivienne Kelly, who writes so incredibly well. It's sort of a dark and elegant literary mystery.' -- Wendy Harmer 'Cooee is an unexpected delight.' Herald Sun 'How masterfully Vivienne Kelly turns the screws in this drolly gothic morality tale...Cooee is a tantalising story of denial, delusion and suspense by a wonderfully fresh and confident new voice.' -- Cate Kennedy
