‘Australian author Michael Giacometti’s debut short story collection My Life & Other Fictions is a penetrating and original book. Awash with intricate and beautiful sentences, bold and alluring voices, and a range of intriguing characters and settings, it’s a collection to savour. Its 20 stories sound the depths of human experience—and yield more treasure with each reading. Themes of entrapment, hubris, wreckage, failure, suffering and desire are explored with insight.’
That’s how literary blogger Marjorie Lewis-Jones sums up My Life & Other Fictions on her blog ABiggerBrighterWorld.
My Life & Other Fictions will be launched in Alice Springs on Monday December 4, 6pm at the Art Shed (10 Crispe Street).
