On a property in western New South Wales, a man named Holland lives with his daughter, Ellen. Over the years, as she grows into a beautiful young woman, he plants hundreds of different eucalyptus trees, filling in the landscape, making a virtual outdoor museum of trees. When Ellen is nineteen, Holland announces his decision: she may only marry the man who can correctly name the species of each and every gum tree on his property.
Suitors emerge from all corners, including the straight-backed Mr. Cave, a world expert on these famous Australian trees. But one day, walking down by the river, where silver light slants into the motionless trunks, Ellen chances on a strange young man resting under the Coolibah tree. In the days that follow, he tells her dozens of stories–set in cities, deserts, and faraway countries.
Eucalyptus is at once a modern fairy tale and a marvelously touching love story, played out against the spearing light and broken shadows of Australia–its land, its history, its people. Murray Bail’s cunning, intricate, and mesmerizing narrative bristles with spiky truths and unexpected wisdom about art, feminine beauty, landscape, and language. More, it eloquently affirms the seductive power of storytelling itself.“The idea that Holland’s daughter was like the princess locked in the tower of a damp castle was of course false. After all, she was living on a property in western New South Wales.”
Once upon a time, on a property in western New South Wales, a man named Holland plants hundreds of varieties of eucalyptus trees, then decrees that only the suitor who can name each and every one of them will be worthy to marry his beautiful daughter, Ellen. Men try and fail: there is the gentle schoolteacher who “had correctly named eighty-seven eucalypts and was doing it well when he went blank at the fatly handsome Jarrah up against the fence behind the house”; and the New Zealander who “came up against, and was defeated by, one of the many Stringybarks…” Old men, young men, commercial travelers, sheep-shearers–even a “smiling Chinaman … all the way from Darwin.” Not one is successful. Then, one day, along comes Mr. Roy Cave, a man renowned in the eucalyptus world, someone who “employed with lip-smacking relish the terms ‘petiole,’ ‘inflorescences,’ ‘falacte’ and ‘lanceolate,’ and he was also comfortable with ‘sessile’, ‘fusiform’ and ‘conculorous.’”
Even in so wonderfully fractured a fairy tale as Murray Bail’s Eucalyptus, it’s obvious that Roy Cave is hardly the stuff romantic dreams are made of. Indeed, despite her father’s warning to “beware of any man who deliberately tells a story,” Ellen’s Prince Charming turns out to be a mysterious young stranger who finds her wandering among her father’s trees and spins her tale after tale, each one tied to a different kind of eucalypt. As the weeks go by, Mr. Cave continues to successfully identify every tree on the property, thus drawing ever closer to his prize. Meanwhile, Ellen’s other suitor captures first her imagination and then her heart with stories of apprentice hairdressers who fall in love with plain-Jane heiresses; solicitors’ daughters involved with married men; and lonely canary breeders who almost find happiness with spinster piano teachers. What all of these off-kilter stories have in common is a theme of missed opportunities, and lovers who realize too late that they were made for each other. Will Ellen, too, end up like one of these the sad-hearted heroines, or will her would-be lover find a way to thwart Mr. Cave’s relentless victory march through the Eucalypts to claim her hand?
There is so much to love about Bail’s novel that it’s difficult to identify exactly which of its qualities make it such a complete delight. Is it Ellen’s “speckled beauty … so covered in small brown-black moles she attracted men, every sort of man”? Is it the detailed descriptions of the landscape? The way Bail uses them to comment on human nature, on the nature of storytelling and of language itself (“a paragraph is not so different from a paddock–similar shape, similar function”)? Or is it the wacky charm of the Scheharezade-like suitor’s urban tales? (“Still in the vicinity of low-height eucalypts he went on to mention, in a thoughtful voice, how in an outer suburb of Hobart an actuary with a well-known insurance company needed a stepladder to woo a widow who passed by his house every day.”) Whatever the source of Bail’s peculiar magic, Eucalyptus casts a spell that will carry readers from first page to last and leave them wishing for a thousand and one more stories just like it. –Alix Wilber
Create a state of security and familiarity to help your cat cope with a new environment. Just plug the Feliway Diffuser into any electrical socket. Much like a plug-in deodorizer, the Feliway Diffuser emits a synthetic cop of your cat’s natural facial pheromone, used by felines to mark their territory as someplace safe and secure. Oil vapor carrying the pheromone will rise in a column of warm air above the Diffuser and prevent your kitty from urinating to mark its territory. Using pheromonatherapy to help sooth your pet is a new field in veterinary medicine. This scent in a room will help reassure your cat while it copes with a challenging new situation. If the Diffuser is being used to help reduce or prevent another behavioral or medical problem, plug it in the room where your cat spends most of its time. Do not cover it, or place it behind a door or beneath furniture. Will cover an area of 50 to 70 square meters and last up to 4 weeks. A 48-milliliter bottle is included along with the diffuser.
