Arnold Zable and Rod Jones at Fortyfivedownstairs, Melbourne

SHORTS@45 returns with new stories from old friends.

One of Melbourne’s favourite writers Arnold Zable will read from his new book The Fighter, a moving and poetic portrait of a compassionate man—and a window into Melbourne’s recent past.

Acclaimed novelist Rod Jones will share a reading from his novel The Mothers, an intimate portrait of three generations of Australian women who learn that it’s the stories we can’t tell that continue to shape us and make us who we are.

SHORTS@45 is supported by Australian Book Review, Collins Booksellers and Hill of Content.
