Betty goes to work in the aged-care centre in town each day, attending her charges with thought and respect, worrying about her children and sighing over the sex she isn't having.
Her longest sighs are over the sex she isn't having with Harry. Harry is the nearest thing Betty's children have ever had to a father and her son Michael has a particular friendship with him; mateship, perhaps? Michael emulates Harry and they work about the farm together, attend to the birds and animals and get along in that modest, unspoken way that, in , was the way it was.
Harry was once married to a woman who ran away with another birdwatching enthusiast.
Mateship With Birds | misstiravrelo.gqonnoisseurs
As he does the milking and watches the birds close at hand, particularly a knockabout family of kookaburras, he ponders what went wrong between himself and his young wife. Knowing what he now knows, he understands that being as eager as one is ignorant can be catastrophic. In sex, ignorance is anything but bliss. His observations are sharpened when he sees Michael as confused by the whole thing as he once was.
He attempts to talk to the inarticulate boy about ''things with girls? But it might not, after all, be the best way to educate a shy youth in such matters.
So, instead of writing the usual amusing tales of birds that he has in the past written for the young boy, he writes about the things that he wishes he had known at Michael's age. What he overlooks is speaking to Michael's mother first before leaving these learned, observant and instructive letters.
Harry and Betty, fully realised characters and the least glamorous people imaginable, carry this tender and underplayed novel.
