Absorbing Short Stories


Take a step, if you dare, into the wild and wonderful world of author Margo Lanagan in her 2013 book of short fiction, Yellowcake. These absorbing stories allow you to keep one foot in the real world while you dangle precariously in the eerie, fantastical worlds she creates.

The people who inhabit her domain will look vaguely familiar; they could be anyone from your family. The circumstances of these stories are wildly unique, but the characters are all searching for the same connection and fulfillment in their relationships as anyone else. Some of the stories are dreamlike and surreal, while others are disturbing and unexpectedly tangible. The titles are enough to entice your curiosity: The Point of Roses, The Golden Shroud, and Catastrophic Disruption of the Head.

Short stories are a great approach to finding new authors without making a lengthy time commitment. Open yourself to the short story experience as you feel the passion and fervor from this gifted Australian writer.
