Short stories from Goldie Goldbloom, award-winning author of The Paperbark Shoe. Dark. Delicious. Superb.

‘Goldbloom is the queen of the opening sentence [she] reels you in with her chiselled, teasing voice that assumes many guises and multiple rhythms.’ Courier-Mail

‘Prepare to encounter startling epiphanies, wonderfully eccentric conceits, and standout instances of wit and observation begging to be re-read.’ Tom Cho

‘Goldbloom’s voice, idiosyncratic and consistently fascinating, plumbs a rich vein of originality that is refreshing and, above all, fun to read … a strong contender for the most interesting and innovative short story collection of the year.’ Australian Book Review

‘Did she ever taste muskrat? That’s anybody’s guess. But one thing’s for certain: She can write well enough to make you think you did.’ Galus Australis

’What’s constant is the surprising insight or odd turn that the stories take.’ Scoop Magazine

’it’s as if we have a glimpse for a few pages into the very heart of characters’ conscious thoughts.’ Readings Monthly

’Goldbloom’s writing is dark, introverted and morbidly appealing.’ The Age
