Goosetown by Joyce Dyer
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is a story about recovering times in our lives that have nearly vanished. We realise we can't remember everything about our past. We search for signs and symbols to jar our recollections. Joyce Dyer weaves her story around the shadows that remain of her first five years. Her uncle, the self-proclaimed mayor of Goosetown, accompanies her as they travel to unearth lost years. She takes the reader on an erratic and unpredictable process. Is the excursion a wild goose chase or can she really find home?
