Leverson, the narrator at the centre of these stories, calls himself a people freak. Seduced by north Queensland's sultry beauty and unique strangeness, he is as fascinated by the invading hordes of misfits from the south as by the old established Queenslanders. Leverson's ironical yet compassionate view makes every story, every incident, a pointed example of human weakness - or strength. Download and start listening now!

    " My yearly reading of a Thea Astley work. Choosing the collection of short stories Hunting the Wild Pineapple reminded me of how much I enjoy reading her work. "Ladies only need apply" was the one that stood out for me. "

    " One of my all time favourite books. Clever, insightful, dry and sometimes very funny. Astley wields words like a circus knife act and I find myself too terrified to flinch. "

    " PMQ library.
    Tried to read this book to gain another dimension of Astley. This book was a series of cameos about 'characters' in the top part of Australia.

    Although some characters were interesting, salt of the earth, Far North Queensland types, the book itself seemed disjointed. "
