AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Melanie Cheng won the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for this collection as an unpublished manuscript – more evidence perhaps of the renaissance of the short story in contemporary publishing. It begins with a distinctly non-literary epigraph: Malcolm Turnbull declaring that “There has never been a more exciting time to be an Australian”. This claim is deconstructed in a series of social portraits that exposes the blindness of Turnbull’s patriotism.' (Introduction)
