The Best Australian Poems 2007
Black Inc., 2007 - Australia - 130 pages
In this seductively diverse collection, Robert Drewe has assembled the country's best short fiction of the past year. Here are sparkling stories from established favorites, alongside exciting new work from a younger generation. Some are whimsical, some wry, and some devastatingly realistic; there is love, grief, murder, tenderness and revenge. Drawn from all over the country and spanning a remarkable range of styles, Best Australian Stories showcases Australia's most vibrant contemporary writing. As Robert Drewe says, 'Don't let anyone tell you the Australian short story is dead. It's thriving.'
