Sue Orr on her first novel The Party Line

From Standing Room Only, 2:37 pm on 6 September 2015

The relationship between farmers and sharemilkers is at the heart of short story writer Sue Orr's first foray into writing a novel. She's based it on one of her short stories called Gypsy Day, when sharemilkers take up new contracts around the country. While most of the time sharemilkers and the farmers they work for get on well, Sue's imagined a scenario where things go terribly wrong because of secrets and lies that tear the small community apart. The Party Line is published by Vintage.
