My Hearts Are Your Hearts

(2015)
A collection of stories by

 

"Bird is on song."
Marion Halligan


What are the hares getting up to among the sunflowers? Who is paying $6000 for a raincoat? The priest is good, kind, adored, believed - but can the schoolgirl trust him? Who kills his wife and dumps the body in the pool? What if you find your death was listed long ago online? With lightness in the telling, with subtle harmonies and rhythms in the sentences, subversive wit, tender observation - these new stories from one of Australia's foremost storytellers explore the mysterious workings of the heart. Accompanied by the author's comments on the stories' origins and themes, as well as insights into the creative process, this is the first in Spineless Wonders' new series, FICTION PLUS. A must for lovers of short fiction - for readers and for writers. Praise for My Hearts Are Your Hearts 'Bird is on song.' - Marion Halligan 'A glittering trove where witty, sharp-eyed narrators never fail to tell you what you really want to know about love, art, sex, death - and the heart, in all its many guises.' - Danielle Wood 'Bird's wit and unsentimental hyper-realism play against her romantic imagery to summon the shifting truths of the human heart.' - Gerardo Rodriguez-Salas 'Delicious and disturbing stories from a great Australian storyteller.' - Brenda Walker 'Intimate and witty, romantic and ironic, and, above all, compassionate, Carmel Bird's extraordinary stories do more than take you in - they abduct you.' - Robert Drewe
