A wonderful collection of twenty-four short stories that celebrate the history, culture and creativity of Tasmania.
Tasmania is another country—a lush, sometimes foreboding island with a people fiercely protective of its history, culture and creativity.
‘[A] beautifully presented short-story collection….Co-editor Danielle Wood does have a wonderful contemporary story in the book, portraying a sleep-deprived new mother coming to terms with the changes in her world. Wood manages to merge the contours and endlessness of Tasmania with the mother’s sense of being lost to herself.’
‘Offers readers a glimpse into the imagery and symbolism that has come to shape how outsiders perceive the island.’
‘[A] beautiful anthology.’
‘A strong, spirited collection…Quality is high and range wide.’
‘A vivid and sometimes sobering picture of the relations among free settlers, convicts and indigenous Australians. There’s real treasure, too, among the more recent stories exploring the quieter domestic dramas of modern life.’
