AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'An aging actress looks out at the view from her hotel room: a shopping centre, KFC, a discount garage; the Pacific Ocean somewhere behind it all. A city that feels too big or too small (compared to the country, compared to London). You can't get lost. Her phone makes the sound of a Bernard Herrmann score...' (Publication abstract)

    'In The Best Australian Stories 2014, Patrick White Award–winning author Amanda Lohrey selects the outstanding short fiction of the year. Sometimes fantastical, sometimes raw, and always a ‘shot of adrenaline to the mind and heart’, this collection features exciting new voices alongside the established and admired.'

    'The edges of reality blur in a corporate lawyer’s tale of working in a 1200-storey glass tower. A prized coffee table becomes the focus of a father’s anxieties and frustrations. Tense and fractured lines of communication shape the life of an interpreter on Christmas Island. Imaginative, remarkable, intimate – this unmissable anthology celebrates the art of consummate storytelling.' (Source: Publisher's Blurb)
