Some of the stories in Common People are based on Birch’s own personal experiences, but all of them display a striking intimacy with the lingua franca of grit, scrabble, labour. They are stories about mundane and quotidian lives on the margins of Australian society. Other critics asked: what keeps his characters going in the face of hardship.

Simon Birch (Ian Michael Smith) is a happy year-old boy, despite the fact that his parents pay no attention to him because they’re disgusted by his dwarfism.

The various birch species fall into the Betula genus, and there are several that are common North American trees in natural environments or used for landscape design purposes.

Because in all beech species the leaves and catkins are similar and they all have very much the same foliage color, the main way to distinguish the species is by close. Birch polypore grows primarily on birch trees, and has no look-alikes. Still, what the author of a mushroom book considers a “look-alike” is often very different than what a novice in the field optimistically hopes is the mushroom that’ll fulfill their quest.

Common People shines a light on human nature and how the ordinary kindness of strangers can have extraordinary results. With characteristic insight and restraint, Tony Birch reinforces his reputation as a master storyteller. Get this from a library.
