Description

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 elebrates the art of consummate storytelling. 'The art of the story is mostly about the journey, and the economy of means with which the writers here carry us a great distance is at times breathtaking.' Amanda Lohrey
