AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Can a relationship survive a long-anticipated but disappointing world trip? Will a small-shopkeeper cope when pitted against an emerging mega-mall? How do we keep our sanity in the face of life’s obstacles – and when we don’t, what will pull it back again? Take a trip through the world’s greatest cities and into the mind’s darkest places. Anthony Macris’s new fiction – a novella and accompanying story cycle – deftly examines our fragile relationships with travel, art, money and, especially, each other.

'Inexperience includes award-winning work previously featured in publications such as Penguin’s Australian Writing Now and Picador New Writing. The collection refreshes and unites Macris’s early work with new writing from the perspective of the more mature and contemplative writer. In it, Macris’s innovative story-telling and subtle ironies show how the experiences that make or break us can also be the ones that tell us who we are. ' (Publication summary)

— Review of Inexperience and Other Stories Anthony Macris 2016 selected work short story
'The Sydney-based writer Anthony Macris has a modest body of published works: two novels, some shorter pieces and a memoir centred on his family's experience of autism. Not surprisingly, therefore, he is not as well-known outside literary circles as he should be. There is, nevertheless, another reason why his is not a household name among readers of recent fiction. His novels and short stories do not fit the mould of what constitutes these days marketable "products". For all that, Macris, who seems to me one of the most interesting writers of our time, has not lacked critical esteem. ...'
