The Yellow House

by Emily O'Grady

Why Our Staff Love The Yellow House: 

Our Fiction Pick for this month is none other than the winner of the Australian/Vogel’s Literary Award, The Yellow House. Told through the eyes of Cub, a gutsy 10-year-old girl, this is the gripping story of one family’s attempt to battle the devastating legacy left by their grandfather’s sinister crimes.

The Yellow House is a potent, unsettling read, the kind of book that gets under your skin and lurks in the back of your mind. This is due in no small part to the talent of debut author Emily O’Grady, whose writing is a powerful reminder of the ways in which good fiction can dive beneath the surface to peer unabashedly at humanity’s ugliness. She’s evoked the isolation of the Australian rural landscape and blended it with unspeakable horrors to create a chilling and subtle story that fans of Sofie Laguna’s The Choke will surely love.

It’s a book that will sit easily in the hands of fiction lovers and true crime fanatics alike - make sure you don’t miss this one.

Book Description:

WINNER The Australian/Vogel’s Literary Award 2018

Ten-year-old Cub lives with her parents, older brother Cassie, and twin brother Wally on a lonely property bordering an abandoned cattle farm and knackery. Their lives are shadowed by the infamous actions of her Granddad Les in his yellow weatherboard house, just over the fence.

Although Les died twelve years ago, his notoriety has grown in Cub’s lifetime and the local community have ostracised the whole family. When Cub’s estranged aunt Helena and cousin Tilly move next door into the yellow house, the secrets the family want to keep buried begin to bubble to the surface. And having been kept in the dark about her grandfather’s crimes, Cub is now forced to come to terms with her family’s murky history.

‘Such energy and precision in the writing, not to mention originality’ – Tegan Bennett Daylight, award-winning author of Six Bedrooms and competition judge

‘A truly visually delightful and compelling narrative with a terrific balance of tension, horror and beauty. Quintessentially Australian’ – Megan O’Brien, bookseller and competition judge
