Kitchen Sink Drama

Paul Connolly and Jim Pavlidis

As seen in Good Weekend: one hundred of Paul Connolly’s beloved one-hundred-word vignettes along with Jim Pavlidis’s whimsical illustrations.

From tempestuous family roasts to the first blooms of young love, from relationship missteps to moments of familial joy, Kitchen Sink Drama reflects domestic life in all its messy, delightful and humorous glory. With characters depicted in nuanced fullness, these poignant, pithy stories capture the truth at the heart of so many of our experiences—each one a glimpse of a whole world.

Kitchen Sink Drama is a collection of some of the finest writing on the human condition.

Praise for Paul Connolly and Jim Pavlidis
andKitchen Sink Drama

‘I hate those Kitchen Sink Dramas. They’re so clever and funny and succinct, it kills me that I can’t come up with anything that good.’

Kitchen Sink Drama is my ideal book. With a wonderful economy of language it perfectly captures our funny ways. The stories are so droll and the lovely pictures so wise.’

‘Somehow, Paul Connolly manages to convey in 100 magic words what takes the rest of us thousands.’

‘There is a gentle, quizzical humour at play in these bite-sized vignettes…an intriguing example of what can work in such an abbreviated form.’
