Oracles and Miracles is Stevan Eldred-Grigg's best-selling debut novel about Ginnie and Fag, twin sisters growing up in poverty in Christchurch in the thirties and forties and living in a world of dreams. It's a city of 'peeling paint, flaking iron, cracked linoleum, dusty yards, lean-tos, and asphalts, dunnies and textile mills'. The novel is a heart-warming story of the girls' close relationship as they grow into women and attempt to escape their impoverished background.
