About this product
- DescriptionIn The Best Australian Stories 2015, Amanda Lohrey, winner of the Patrick White Award and author of the acclaimed vel A Short History of Richard Kline, curates twenty pieces of exceptional short fiction. In this wide-ranging collection, there are stories that will surprise, unsettle and beguile readers. Familiar subjects are examined from new perspectives- a teenage girl sneaks into a famous film director's study and steals his diaries; the life of Picasso is reimagined in miniature vignettes. And new life is breathed into the most universal of experiences- birth, death, love and loss. The mother of a girl with hearing difficulties watches her child grow into increasing independence. A young woman makes a poignant voyage to the site of her brother's suicide. Elegant, accomplished and evocative, these short stories move, delight and inspire. Goldie Goldbloom * John A.
