      Iain Banks' Crow Road begins thus:'It was the day my grandmother exploded.'Why this is a famous opening baffles me. It is vulgar, too brash. It is an opening by a writer that wants the reader to look at him, not the words on the page. It shows off.Murray Bail's short story 'Camouflage' begins thus:'All things considered, piano-tuning is a harmless profession.' Now that's a great opening gambit. 'Camouflage' and 'The Seduction of My Sister'. Two trifles, both about flying in odd ways. Impossible [...]

      I picked up of the 2 story version of Murray Bail's collection. Like an old school single the A side was great: Camouflage - the artists and musicians from Adelaide painting the corrugated iron aerodrome. The B side The Seduction of my Sister was disappointing and definitely not a hit!

      I actually read a stripped down version of this collection that just contained the title story and "The Seduction of My Sister." Reasonably engaging but nothing too special from a fairly acclaimed Australian writer. I'm still interested in reading Eucalyptus.

      Interesting, but not particularly memorable. It's very slight, felt more like a new yorker story than a collection of short stories.

      Two short stories. They are certainly memorable. Their connection? Flying in two very different ways.
