This year we published a UK edition of Ryan O'Neill's Their Brilliant Careers, a collection of spoof biographies of made-up literary characters which fitted together as a dazzlingly original comic novel and won Australia's richest fiction prize.
Now we are delighted to reissue Ryan's first book. The Weight of a Human Heart is a collection of short stories that was shortlisted for a string of awards when it was first published in 2012.
A series of graphs illustrate the disintegration of a marriage. A literary brawl and an affair play out in the book review section of a newspaper. A young girl learns her mother’s secrets through the broken key on a typewriter. Sometimes comic, sometimes tragic, the collection turns the rules of storytelling on their head and was described as ‘joyfully original' by The Independent.
Our new ebook edition is out now.
