Publisher's synopsis

Henry Lawson’s short story ‘The Drover’s Wife’ is an Australian classic that has sparked interpretations on the page, on canvas, and on the stage. But it has never been so thoroughly or hilariously reimagined as by Ryan O’Neill, remixing and revising Lawson’s masterpiece in 99 different ways.

You’ll be amused, delighted, and surprised by a Year 8 essay, a sporting commentary, a pop song, a Hollywood movie adaptation, and many more.

Inventive and unexpected, this is laugh-out-loud literature from one of Australia’s finest satirists.
