Griffith Review 50: Tall Tales Short—The Novella Project III

Griffith Review, Book Fifty

Julianne Schultz and Aviva Tuffield

‘I believe the novella is the perfect form of prose fiction. It is the beautiful daughter of a rambling, bloated, ill-shaven giant (but a giant who’s a genius on his best days). And this child is the means by which many first know our greatest writers…’ Ian McEwan

In 2012, Griffith Review 38: The Novella Project relaunched the novella in Australia. It gave Australian and New Zealand authors a platform in the revival of the form in the English language.

Griffith Review 46: Forgotten Stories—The Novella Project II was a confronting, moving and provocative collection of five novellas with a historical dimension.

Griffith Review 50: Tall Tales Short—The Novella Project III features five novellas selected from a nationwide competition, blind-judged by Cate Kennedy, Jacqueline Blanchard and Brian Johns. Contributors are Tony Davis, Nick Earls, Helen Gildfind, Catherine McKinnon and Madeleine Watts.

Griffith Review 50: Tall Tales Short—The Novella Project III promises to be the best collection so far of this exciting form.
