Prophecy - & other stories
Publisher: Ginninderra Press
What makes a storyteller? I have always been a reader – books that were true, preposterous, funny, serious, scientific, literary – whatever was on my grandparents’ shelves. From being very young, I could enlarge on the truth. I didn’t tell fibs, just made the truth more interesting. For a very long time, I’ve eavesdropped: conversations on trains and buses, overheard mobile phone conversations. One remark can give rise to an idea which can lead to a variety of destinations. But no, I’m sorry to disappoint: none of the characters depicted in this collection exist.
