With A GARDEN AMID FIRES Swan claims new mastery of the short story.

Swan's first novel, a captivating blend of fantasy and reality, follows the meanderings of an expiring road show through the desert Southwest. Most of the acts have deserted. Now only the giant, the magician, the midget, and the newly arrived snake dancer and her mute son travel with Dusty and his wife Alta, who is sorely tempted to abandon the troupe and Dusty's 25-year dream of fame. Using the carnival life as a metaphor, Swan paints an intriguing portrait of her "carnies" as they wander further and further into new and more tempting landscapes.

Residents are currently not allowed to return to the town, amid safety concerns, and an unknown number of homes have been destroyed.

The fire in the Pechey state forest has damaged water supply to the city and a dozen surrounding smaller communities. The damage to the water network meant residents were restricted to domestic water use only as the council worked to repair the network damage. Fires burnt the powerlines connected to the city’s water network, including the Cressbrook Dam pump station, stopping water pumping from the region’s largest source of water. The network supplies water to surrounding towns. The NSW premier, Gladys Berejiklian, said the past week was a reminder the summer isn’t going to be pleasant in terms of the bushfire risk.
