The first collection of short stories from the prize-winning author of The Slap and Barracuda. ‘… while Merciless Gods seethes with sex, drugs, profanity and violence, it is also full of love, kindness, beauty and, not to be underestimated, comedy.’ – Stephen Romei

talkingsmackAndrew McMillen Talking Smack: Honest conversations about drugs

Fourteen interviews with Australian musicians give rare insights into the mystique of drugs and the creative process. ‘The real interest in Talking Smack is not so much the drug tales … The strength of the book is the insights that McMillen gives into the creative processes of these artists.’  – Toby Creswell in his review for NRB.

An extraordinary collection of dresses inspires an extraordinary recollection of a young woman’s life. ‘… in trying to figure out how to integrate her collection into her life … she discovers the person she has always wanted to be,’ said Kylie Mason in her NRB review.

Sixteen-year-old Skip and 12-year old Marlo are sisters farmed out to relatives after their mother is sectioned. At first they both dream of escape but gradually they see a different side to the town of Crater Lakes, where prejudice and violence run deep but belonging and family run deeper.
