FINE Michelle Wright A brilliant debut of originality, depth and beauty. Publisher: Allen & Unwin|Paperback Rights available: Film/TV, Audio, Translation Agent: Clare Forster (email@example.com) Description: Fine shines a light into the quiet corners of human life. By observing the traumas, doubts and isolation of its characters, the book reveals the strength and fragility of people and relationships. This collection of short stories explore the silent sorrows, desires and regrets that we choose to hide when we say that we are 'fine'. As they describe moments big and small in the lives of ordinary people, they invite us to think about who we are when no one is looking. By illuminating these quiet moments in ordinary lives, Michelle Wright follows in a tradition which includes Olga Masters, Amy Witting and Alice Munro. Many of these stories have won Australian and international awards, and this collection was shortlisted for the Victorian Premier's Award for an Unpublished Manuscript. Michelle Wright is an award-winning short story writer who brings to life a remarkable range of characters and has begun an impressively productive career as a writer of short fiction, winning attention in many awards, including The Age short story competition, the Grace Marion Wilson Award, and Overland Victorian University Award.
