    Gravel by Peter Goldsworthy Summary ☆ eBook ePUB or Kindle PDF Gravel by Peter GoldswortA good writer I like his prose But the point of every story seems to be that people are weak Women are especially weak in his stories No one is in control of their lives everyone is easily manipulated by others no one is comfortable with who they are especially the women in his stories A very dark book
