Description - The Rest is Weight by Jennifer Mills
A girl searches for her lost grandmother while her parents quarrel at home. A young architect finds herself entangled by a strange commission. A man contemplates inertia after toxic fallout changes life in a remote Australian town. A woman imagines a mother's love for her autistic son. The award-winning stories in The Rest is Weight reflect Jennifer Mills' years in Central Australia, as well as her travels to Mexico, Russia and China. Sometimes dreamy and hypnotic, sometimes dark, comic and wry, Mills weaves themes of longing, alienation, delusion, resilience, and love. Collected or on their own, these stories are both a joy and wonder to read. 'Shifting effortlessly from the naturalistic to the deeply surreal, these stories conjure a whole sensory universe and the exiles who inhabit it with images that lodge in your hear and just won't leave. Mills' precision is breathtaking.' Cate Kennedy Praise for Jennifer Mills 'Clearly a talent.' Australian Book Review 'Highly original.' Sydney Morning Herald 'Brilliant.' Bookseller + Publisher
