AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Between these covers there are imaginary lovers, unattainable lovers, star-crossed lovers and predestined lovers. There is straight love, same sex love and some very curious love.

'…And, Love’s attendants—cupid, lust, obsession, and betrayal—dance through this volume that contributes to the growing tradition of Australian love.

'This brand new collection on love from Inkerman & Blunt is a beautiful companion to Australian Love Poems. Edited by Australia’s most respected short story writer, and well loved poet and novelist, Cate Kennedy. The book features stories from award winning local writers who are recognised nationally and internationally such as Bruce Pascoe, Jon Bauer, David Francis, Carmel Bird, Lisa Jacobson, Irma Gold, Tony Birch. There are stories from a host of new voices and renowned writers such as Catherine Cole, Leah Swan, Catherine Bateson and Susan Midalia.' (Publication summary)
