A uniquely Australian anthology of short stories, visually, culturally and linguistically evocative of that country (and continent), the unsurprisingly named ‘Long and Short Australian Stories’ is incredibly readable and relatable, with the sort of easy-going narrative fluency that makes each story a thoroughly enchanting page-turner.

Though always from her perch on the Aussie shoreline, Sharp explores all the universal themes that define stories of romance and relationships: jealousy, ambition, empathy, love and self-actualization.

Backdrops include beaches, cottages and city apartments, the urban and the rural: a multifaceted scenic tour that enhances the feel of the various narratives… long and short. This is a book for fans of literary fiction and romance, but suitable also for a YA audience.

As are all of Margaret Lynette Sharp’s books, this is one is edited by her husband Ronald Sharp B.E.M., the creator of the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall’s Grand Organ.
