`In his supercalifragilisticexpialidocious new book Ryan O'Neill does something stunningly original using Henry Lawson's The Drover's Wife - turning it into a bravura literary game. I have never read a work like this before. It is a perfect reference book and teaching aid for teachers and students of English by illustrating the rich variety of ways we play with and use the language. A cerebrally imaginative tour de force' - Frank Moorhouse, `Playful, inventive and often laugh-out-loud funny, The Drover's Wives is a brilliant array of Oulipo-inspired exercises in style' - David Belbin
