#AWW2021 Jessica Anderson
I had this book shipped all the way from Australia (…via Amazon.com)
Little did I know I ordered a ‘gem’!
8 short stories that are EXCELLENT!
Part 1 (5 stories) reflects the title
Stories told from the point of view of Beatie, (Jessica Anderson)
a young girl growing up in Brisbane (…the “warm zone”),
She recreates family relationships and trace
the path from adolescence to adulthood.
Rhoda, Sybil and Neal represent the author’s siblings.
Part 2: Sydney Stories
2 unhappy marriages + one happy relationship.
The last story can easily be a ‘novella’…took 3 hrs to read
…but oh, so good!
This is the first short story collection I’ve read with
a perfect 100% score….all 8 stories are worth your reading time.
#Bravo Jessica Anderson!!
