(A book in the Best Australian Stories series)
An anthology of stories edited by Delia Falconer
In The Best Australian Stories 2008, Delia Falconer brings together the year's most exciting short fiction. Featuring established masters as well as fresh new voices, this is a perfect book for summer and an ideal introduction to Australia's best contemporary writing. 'As a reader,' Delia Falconer writes, 'I crave what the short story is most suited to deliver: a glimpse into the unpredictability of life, a quick burst of tone and voice, a bittersweet balance of surprising layers.' By turn global and domestic, subversively funny and wrenchingly sad, this year's Best Australian Stories delivers this, and more. Contributors include: Nam Le, Robert Drewe, Emily Ballou, Nicholas Shakespeare, Bernard Cohen, Deborah Robertson, Frank Moorhouse, Tony Birch, Marion Halligan, Will Elliott, Karen Hitchcock, Brenda Walker, Dorothy Johnston, Patrick West, Davina Bell, A.G. McNeil, Claire Aman, Rudi Soman, Patrick Holland, Isabelle Li, Ellen Rodger, Laura Jean McKay, Julie Milland, Tim Richards, Anna Krien, Chloe Walker.
