Two Steps Forward 2011 selected work short story 'It's easy to get stuck in a rut. What binds the characters in 'Two steps forward' is an indomitable desire to climb their way out. Located in familiar Australian settings, this collection brilliantly weaves together authentic characters and adverse scenarios. You'll encounter battlers, underdogs and people who've hit hard times. Protagonists to root for and causes to cheer. In this affecting, assured debut, Irma Gold celebrates courage and challenges our notions of what it takes to be happy.' (Trove record)
