Me and Rory Macbeath by Richard Beasley

Reviewed by

In Richard Beasley’s third novel, a friendship between three boys ends violently, and one of them is tragic-ally implicated. The lives of the young teenagers – Jake, Robbie, and Rory – are filled out with street football, driveway cricket, billycarts, fishing trips, slingshot target practice, and the comedy of flatulence. Their world is Rose Avenue during the Adelaide summer of 1977.
