A Matter of Perception - Tahlia Newland
I reviewed "The Hole in the Pavement", one of the short stories in this collection, as my first Australian Women Writers Challenge review. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I'm glad to say the entire collection hits that high standard.
A Matter of Perception is speculative fiction: that means life gets a little twist added to it.
I appreciated the overall optimism of the collection. These modern fairytales are hopeful, but they don't under-value the courage living requires by granting easy happy ever afters.
I also liked the Australian style: the turn of phrase and strong narrative drive.
