The debut collection of short fiction from Michael Giacometti, My Life & Other Fictions is unique. It is bold, diverse and richly lyrical. It blurs the lines between fiction and non-fiction, fate and desire, identity and history. These are stories for this lifetime … and the next.
“A layered, richly textured collection that displays a virtuosic sense of character and voice. Giacometti leverages language and the short story form brilliantly to offer a deeply rendered evocation of humanity and its connection to the world.”
– MICHAEL SALA, winner NSW Premiers Literary Award for New Writing 2013 (The Last Thread)
