Description - The Best Australian Stories 2015 by Amanda Lohrey

In The Best Australian Stories 2015, Amanda Lohrey, winner of the Patrick White Award and author of the acclaimed novel A Short History of Richard Kline, curates twenty pieces of exceptional short fiction. In this wide-ranging collection, there are stories that will surprise, unsettle and beguile readers. Familiar subjects are examined from new perspectives- a teenage girl sneaks into a famous film director's study and steals his diaries; the life of Picasso is reimagined in miniature vignettes. And new life is breathed into the most universal of experiences- birth, death, love and loss. The mother of a girl with hearing difficulties watches her child grow into increasing independence. A young woman makes a poignant voyage to the site of her brother's suicide. Elegant, accomplished and evocative, these short stories move, delight and inspire. Goldie Goldbloom * John A. Scott * Claire Corbett * Cate Kennedy * Melissa Beit * Colin Oehring * Gay Lynch * Eleanor Limprecht * Julie Koh * Jo Lennan * Omar Musa * Ryan O'Neill * Sarah Klenbort * Jo Case * Balli Kaur Jaswal * Jennifer Down * Nick Couldwell * Nicola Redhouse * Annette Trevitt * Mark Smith 'Some readers are drawn to the promise inherent in a novel, and it's true that the longer form can offer a slow and seductive immersion, but the short story offers pleasure of another kind - the quick fix, a shot of adrenaline to the mind and heart.'
