Mateship with Birds by Carrie Tiffany is this year's Stella prize winner. Set in country Victoria in the 1950s, it follows the fortunes of two people whose loneliness is offset by the many active strands of their daily lives: Harry, a farmer whose wife has left him for somebody else; and Betty, an aged-care nurse whose two children have no visible father. Mateship with Birds is a deceptively gentle-looking novel whose calm surface belies its many sharp and frank observations about the world.
