AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Weaving an intricate and pulsating web of psychological and physical yearning, Arrhythmia: Stories of Desire is a collection of short fiction whose unifying theme is the manifestation of longing beneath the mundane surface of people's everyday lives.

'Men and women, young and old, urban and rural, contemporary and historical; all are interlinked through a profound familiarity that urges the reader to explore the interior lives of the protagonists - culminating in some surprising revelations that will leave you pondering the continuous influence the past exerts upon the present.

'This distinctive and powerful collection from West Australian luminary Richard Rossiter implies an auto/biographical stance in many of the stories, compelling an intellectual reflection on the very nature of what it means to feel human.' (From the publisher's website.)
