There are twenty-eight distinctive narrative voices in this anthology of new writing from Australia’s west. Combining short pieces of fiction with creative non-fiction, The Kid on the Karaoke Stage & Other Stories is a quirky and memorable collection that will resonate long after you close its covers.

Contributors include: Amanda Curtin (Winner, University of Canberra National Short Story Competition), Jon Doust (Longlist, 2010 Miles Franklin Literary Award), Goldie Goldbloom (Winner, 2008 AWP Novel Award, Jerusalem Post short fiction prize), Pat Jacobs (Winner, WA Premier’s Book Awards), Alice Nelson (Winner, 2009 Sydney Morning Herald Best Young Novelist) and many more.

‘This is one of the best books I’ve read of any genre and that’s coming from someone who normally avoids short story collections.’ Pelican
