Where There’s Smoke presents outstanding short fiction by Australia’s finest male writers. These are tales of love, secrets, doubt and torment, the everyday and the extraordinary.
A man sleeps at the site of a massacre and wakes refreshed. An unassuming piano tuner is sent off to contribute to the war effort. A woman with Alzheimer’s is dragged along by her interfering son to visit Uluru.
Brilliant, shocking and profound, these tales will leave you reeling in ways that only a great short story can.
