New Australian Fiction 2019

‘The stories in this collection are nuanced, captivating and accomplished. With the briefest of brushstrokes, they reveal vivid and complex worlds. Australian short fiction is indeed alive and well.’

– Maxine Beneba Clarke

‘A consistently high-quality collection…the sort of fiction that is firmly grounded in character and narrative.’

 – Age Sydney Morning Herald

‘Like the best short fiction should, these stories leave room for interpretation, and echo the despair of the modern age while still providing a glimmer of something close to hope.’

Saturday Paper

‘This volume truly has something for everyone, and is a wonderful way to discover some excellent emerging Australian writers.’
