AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Every year for the past ten, the Sleepers editors have called for stories from around Australia - any length up to 10,000 words. The result is always a heartbreaking and hilarious combination of tales from established authors alongside emerging and completely new authors. Many Sleepers Almanac stories have gone on to be selected for the Best Australian Stories, a testament to the high quality of the stories in here. As this is the final Sleepers Almanac, this will become a collector’s edition.' (Publication summary)

A photo of the advertisement on the side of a tram and a stream of question marks, like one of those puzzles in the paper where you had to make meaning from two oblique images He didn't remember precisely what the play was about. Something about men attracted to strong light, the way the sugarcane grew straight, yearly pilgrimages. he bought the tickets anyway.' (Introduction)
