Edmund Pegge Forever Horatio: An actor’s life

With a foreword by Dame Judi Dench. Edmund Pegge is one of Australia’s most prolific supporting actors. Travelling between England and Australia and working in film and television for over 50 years, he knows all the tricks and trials of a working actor’s life. It is a celebration of the unexpected joy of being, as he puts it, forever Horatio, never Hamlet.

Michael Giacometti My Life & Other Fictions: A collection of short stories (and why they were written)

Our reviewer Jessica Stewart said, ‘Giacometti is skilled in the short form and his most successful stories are those of two to three pages only. There is much to excite, to heighten our senses, then a swift close. There is no dusk in his nightfall … His explication of his characters’ motivations and their struggles through the frameworks of Buddhism, Hinduism and Judeo-Christianity bestows a generous guide for the reader. To read is to learn and this is a gift.’ You can read the full review here.
