Product description

Synopsis

This new collection of fiction from Graeme Harper, writing as Brooke Biaz, investigates the meanings attached to events in place; and then the tourism of time bound to places, with bountiful humor and wit SMALL MAPS OF THE WORLD unearths the bonds between individuals and location but also wonders on the underlying connections between people and their sense of belonging. Inspired by events in places from Europe and Great Britain to Australasia and the USA, these stories find the subsurface of the surroundings through voice and story in a tapestry of narratives woven around a hotel and restaurant. Tourists blend in, or not, living their mysteries and love stories in these slices of small-town, coastal life. THE AUTHOR GRAEME HARPER is Editor-in-Chief of the international journal NEW WRITING, and Head of the School of Creative Arts, Film and Media at the University of Portsmouth (UK). Chair of the UK's Centre for Creative Writing Research-Through-Practice, his works include DANCING ON THE MOON, SWALLOWING FILM: SHORT FICTION and BLACK CAT, GREEN FIELD. His awards include the National Book Council Award for New Fiction (Australia) and many others.
