Gerald Murnane: Collected Short Fiction
Gerald Murnane

Paperback $34.95 - Giramondo Publishing
Fiction - Published: 1/Apr/2018 - ISBN: 9781925336641

A definitive collection that brings together Gerald Murnane’s shorter works of fiction, most of which have been out of print for the past twenty five years. It includes such fine pieces as ‘When the Mice Failed to Arrive’, ‘Stream System’, ‘First Love’, ‘Emerald Blue’, and ‘The Interior of Gaaldine’, a story which holds the key to the long break in his career and heralds the later work in Barley Patch and Border Districts. Murnane's distinctive prose shines in sensitive portraits of family members – parents, uncles and aunts, and particularly children – and in his probing of situations which contain anxiety and embarrassment, shame or delight.
