157 pages. Joss hears her mother turn off the lights in the kitchen and the dining room. Hears her walk slowly up the stairs. Her parents' bed creaks, Joss feels her mother giving up her weight to the old mattress. Silence. Light from her parents' bedroom shines across the landing and into Joss's room. Joss listens for her father's car. Listening For Small Sounds is the story of Joss, a young girl trapped in the tensions of her parents' tangled marriage. Her days are full: there is school and playing, hanging out with her mother and fighting with her friends. Her nights are long, as she lies in her bed and listens for small sounds to determine the mood of her unpredictable and violent father. Often funny, sometimes unbearably sad, Joss's story is one of strength, acceptance, and above all, family. Though the narrator is young the world she draws for us is rich with the complexities of the coming together of loving and hatred. Shortlisted for the 1995 Australian/Vogel Award, Listening For Small Sounds is Penelope Trevor's first novel and heralds a remarkable new talent.
