The Fever and the Fret
by Jub Clerc
‘Grandan, I promise that after the funeral I will take you to the TAB.’
Lizzy and her grandparents have endured, suffered, and even celebrated loss for decades – but now unseen events are tearing their world apart. A beautiful ode to love and memory, The Fever and the Fret examines one family’s tale of resilience as they reconcile small town life with a new, ever-changing world.
