Nicholas Shakespeare's collected stories take us across oceans and continents into the intimate lives of his characters and the dilemmas and temptations they face. The opening novella, 'Oddfellows', tells the little-known history of horrifying events that occurred on 1 January 1915 in the Australian outback town of Broken Hill, where, on the citizens' annual picnic outing, the only enemy attack to occur on Australian soil during the First World War, took them by surprise.
