It’s said – and it’s true – a great short story is often more memorable than a full-length novel, as the short story demands the fullest expression of an author’ skill in a smaller space.  This volume consists of fifty-three shorts by classic and modern greats of Australia and New Zealand: Morris Luri; Geoffrey Dutton; Henry Lawson; Ruth Park; Henry Handel Richardson; Dal Stivens; Olaf Ruhn; Alan Marshall; Cherry Wilder; D’Arcy Niland and so many more.
