Rate this:
In this wonderfully eclectic collection published by Spineless Wonders, A.S. Patric shows us a surreal side of Melbourne where anything can happen. A tram driver makes a mercy dash with a carriage full of show dogs, a boy smuggles a lizard onto an airplane and long-dead Anais Nin and June Miller are spending their twilight years squabbling in Australian suburbia. There are stories that explore the darker side of human nature and those that show us the beauty and the struggle of growing up, of identity and of relationships. There is humour, there is tragedy but above all there is the poetry that the generous hearted Patric manages to distill from everyday life.
