Collisions is an extraordinarily creative anthology of short fiction clustering the stories around the themes of Bodies, Momentum and Contact.
Collisions is an extraordinarily creative anthology of short fiction clustering the stories around the themes of Bodies, Momentum and Contact. The introduction establishes the foundation of the collection, grounding it in Australia’s history of colonial conflict and violence. The stories in the collection intersect with this foundation in myriad ways, expertly exploring the notion of connection and belonging, the relationship between history and fiction and the future of the self and the body. With a broad range of backgrounds, each writer infuses their identity into their work, giving us stories that move away from the white norm but still present the Australia we all live in.
