Author: Kirsten Tranter Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/08/2015

Here are big stories rendered in miniature and fleeting moments captured with elaborate focus. A stolen glimpse of a father dancing alone to music; Gothic landscapes on the New South Wales coast; incredible spectrums in the colors of butterflies; Aussie cricket and climate change; remembrances of an exiled home land; or the awkward sexual politics at a funeral. These stories capture delightful and unsettling moments of estrangement, when the new becomes familiar and the ordinary, sublime. Authors include Ceridwen Dovey, Rjurik Davidson, Tania Hershman, Roberta Lowing, Angela Meyer, and John Tranter.
