The Australian Long StoryBook - 2009
A TREASURE TROVE OF THE FINEST AUSTRALIAN WRITING
In this collection, acclaimed writer Mandy Sayer brings together nine of the best Australian examples of the long story - tales that combine the intensity of the short story with the complexity of a novel.
In these stories, characters grow up, hook up and break up, endure calamitous loss and discover delectable love, travel to faraway places and find themselves right back where they started. From the exotic to the familiar, the sensuous to the dangerous, these soaring flights of the imagination boldly traverse the vast terrain of human experience.
Showcasing the talents of some of our most loved and awarded authors, this invigorating collection is an excellent introduction to an often overlooked art form, promising to enchant all lovers of Australian fiction.
