In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Lucky is a pet Galah who has secret conversations with a satellite dish. The year is 1969 and the small western Australian town he calls home is gearing up to help with the relay of messages between Apollo 11 and Houston Texas.
In the background a very suburban life is playing out. The modern world is looking in on small town Australia and social hierarchies are navigated through gossip, dinner parties and dressmaking while visits from international scientists cause a stir. Lucky the Galah watches the community struggle without judgment. He drinks tea and hopes for an occasional biscuit, or a really good novel to literally ‘rip’ into.
This is a charming and uniquely Australian story, delightfully told. A new Australian classic that will appeal to fans of The Dressmaker by Rosalie Ham, or My Brilliant Career by Miles Franklin.
