About this product
- DescriptionThis collection of short stories examines the searing pain of lost love, the precious delight of new love, the fierce ambitions of youth, and the delicious absurdity of dreams. All of the stories are seasoned with a pinch or two of satire and laced with skepticism. The narratives take us on a geographical journey from the playing fields of semi-rural eastern Australia to the majestic mountains of rthern Iran. We also travel across time - embarking from a quietly content Australia in the 1960s, visiting a politically fragile Iran in the 1970s, and finally arriving at an eerily plausible Sydney in 2052.
- Author BiographyDavid Morisset is an Australian writer who grew up in the semi-rural environment of Sydney's western fringe in the 1960s. He then roamed the world, first as a diplomat, and then as an economist. His first novel, provisionally titled 'Around the Persian Garden', explores cross-cultural relationships and contrasting sexual protocols against the backdrop of the Iranian Revolution. There are echoes of the novel in his short story, 'The Road to Chalus'. David Morisset lives in suburban Sydney but he is eager to find a quiet place to write beside one of eastern Australia's beautiful beaches.
