There are imaginary lovers, unattainable lovers, star-crossed lovers and predestined lovers. There is straight love, same sex love and some very curious love. And Love's attendants - cupid, lust, obsession, and betrayal - dance through this volume that contributes to the growing tradition of Australian love. This brand new collection is a beautiful companion to Australian Love Poems released last year and still going strong. Its cover features a brilliant silver foil and soft velvet laminate. The internals reflect the design of Australian Love Poems creating a matching set. Australian Love Stories is edited by Australia's most respected short story writer, and well loved poet and novelist, Cate Kennedy. The book features stories from award-winning local writers who are recognized nationally and internationally, such as Bruce Pascoe, Jon Bauer, David Francis, Carmel Bird, Lisa Jacobson, Irma Gold, Tony Birch. There are stories from a host of new voices and renowned writers such as Catherine Cole, Leah Swan, Catherine Bateson and Susan Midalia. Here's a wonderful review of the much anticipated Australian Love Stories.
