              The Impossible Fairytale tells the story of the nameless `Child', who struggles to make a mark on the world, and her classmate Mia, whose spoiled life is everything the Child's is not. At school, their fellow students seem consumed by an almost murderous rage. Adults are nearly i...nvisible, and the society the children create on their own is marked by soul-crushing hierarchies and an underlying menace. One day after hours the Child sneaks into the classroom to add ominous sentences to her classmates' notebooks, setting in motion a series of cataclysmic events.A teacher, who is also this book's author, wakes from an intense dream. When she arrives at her next class, she recognises a student: the Child, who knows about the events of the novel's first half, which took place years before.The Impossible Fairytale is a fresh and terrifying exploration of the ethics of art making and of the stinging consequences of neglect.

              A new 'right now' resource to help artists, cultural workers and organisations better engage with community-based projects There is increasing demand on artists, institutions and organisations to work well in community-engaged contexts, but few resources or training opportunities... are currently available to develop the sector's capacity in this area.

Contributors include Genevieve Grieves about working in First Nations contexts; Caroline Bowditch on access and disability; Dianne Jones, Odette Kelada and Lilly Brown on racial literacy; Ruth De Souza and Robyn Higgins on cultural safety in the arts; as well as Esther Anatolitis, Adolfo Aranjuez, Paschal Berry, Lenine Bourke, Tania Canas, Rosie Dennis, Alia Gabres, Eleanor Jackson, Samuel Kanaan-Oringo, Fotis Kapetopoulos, Kate Larsen, Lia Pa'apa'a, Anna Reece, Daniel Santangeli, and Jade Lillie herself.

              Dizzy Limits: Recent Experiments in Australian Nonfiction

              Dizzy Limits: Recent Experiments in Australian Nonfiction (Paperback)

              What is 'experimental nonfiction'? Like all nonfiction writing it is steeped in facts, in real events, and in real people, with the aim of communicating information, argument, and truth. It differs from traditional nonfiction in that it tries to convey its meaning using unorthodo...x form, or style, or voice, or point-of-view, or approach, or method. The very best pieces of experimental nonfiction are those in which any unorthodox element adds richly to the meaning and authenticity of the subject matter - to the point that it would be difficult to imagine the piece being successful without the experimenting. Dizzy Limits collects the very best examples of the above mentioned experimental nonfiction from our most intellectually ambitious and creatively curious writers. Dizzy Limits includes pieces that explore: the body and its relationship to the world; climate change; the connection of First Nations people to land; trans motherhood; leeches; computers pretending to be humans; and so much more - and all in truly dazzling and unexpected ways. Contributors include: Noelle Janaczewska, Jean Bachoura, Ellen van Neerven, Jessie Berry-Porter, W.J.P. Newnham, Bella Klaver, Amanda Stewart, Eloise Grills, Oscar Schwartz, Lucy Van, Rebecca Giggs, Evelyn Araluen, Tess Pearson, Quinn Eades, Vivienne Cutbush, Shu-Ling Chua, Holly Childs, Oliver Reeson, Sam Wallman, Sophia O'Rourke, Nikkola Mikocki- Bleeker, Harry Saddler, Elena Gomez, Autumn Royal, Stephanie Guest and Kate Riggs. 'This book is an uprising, puncturing the prefab moves of literary nonfiction. It's a blueprint for a miraculous reanimation of the form's capacity for revelation and self-renewal.' - Maria Tumarkin 'I'm totally for Dizzy Limits. Everything here expands the scale, reconfigures writing, entertains and inhabits my mind long after I'm done reading them all. And then I come back. It's where to get lost, like I love.' - Eileen Myles

              Balancing Acts: Women in Sport: Essays on power, performance, bodies & love

              Focusing on a critically underrepresented part of Australian culture (the many ways non-male participants in sport negotiate the traditionally male spectacle of athleticism) this accessible and inclusive collection investigates the way sporting bodies and achievements are portray...ed in Australian media and daily life. The book understands the term `sport' in the widest possible sense, and applies the definition of `women' in the same broad way to include trans, gender diverse, non-binary, intersex, and otherwise non-cis women. Several essays are also written from and/or about queer, gay, and bisexual women. Essays examine the way women athletes' experience are marginalised and under-reported, and attempt to de-centre the status quo of sports writing and commentary as currently dominated by male perspectives and expertise.

              Mary Leunig's drawings jump right into the reader's face, demanding attention and challenging the status quo with their content. Drawn in pen and watercolour with black lines and vibrant colours, there's no artist who combines dark humour with confronting like Mary Leunig. This s...triking full-colour collection from one of Australia's most interesting personalities will get eyes staring and chins trembling. With a design that harks back to her earlier books, this new book will remind old readers of the sharpness and relevance of Mary Leunig's art, and dumbfound those who wonder why she was ever relegated to the scrap heap in the first place.

              Community radio host Ciara receives dozens of unmarked cassette recordings every week and broadcasts them to a listenership of none. Ex-musician Tom drives an impractical bus that no one ever boards. Publican Jenny runs a hotel that has no patrons. Rick wanders the aisles of the ...Woolworths every day in an attempt to blunt the disappointment of adulthood. In a town of innumerable petrol stations, labyrinthine cul-de-sac streets, two competing shopping plazas, and ubiquitous drive-thru franchises, where are these people likely to find the truth about their collective past - and can they do so before the town completely disappears? Shaun Prescott's debut novel The Town follows an unnamed narrator's efforts to complete a book about disappeared towns in the Central West of New South Wales. Set in a yet-to-disappear town in the region-a town believed by its inhabitants to have no history at all-the novel traces its characters' attempts to carve their own identities in a place that is both unyielding and teetering on the edge of oblivion.

              Do you accidentally get turned-on while watching a nature documentary? Are you dating someone whose tattoos are the worst but you're having the best sex of your life? Are you feeling emasculated because your girlfriend has had more one-night stands than you? Never fear: the world...'s first mother-son sex and relationships advice duo is here to save you from yourself. The longest-running regular column in The Lifted Brow , the `Law School' column has been offering stern warnings, enthusiastic encouragement, and sage (and not-so-sage) wisdom to desperate lovers and sexual adventurists alike since 2011. This collection brings the best of `Law School' into an excruciatingly funny and semi-explicit illustrated book of advice you never knew you needed. Hilarious, rude, and surprisingly heart-warming, Law School covers the practical and ethical dilemmas of sex and relationships from two very different perspectives. Ben and Jenny challenge the way we think and talk about the intimate, in funny and earnest banter. Their advice will either save your love life, or ruin it forever.

              Good God, where did this wise-beyond-his-years 25-year-old critic's voice come from? His breath of proudly putrefied air is something to behold. Finally, a new Parker Tyler is on the scene. Yep. Mr. Fox is the real thing. - John Waters, New York Times This Young Monster is a hall...ucinatory celebration of artists who raise hell, transform their bodies, anger their elders and show their audience dark, disturbing things. What does it mean to be a freak? Why might we be wise to think of the present as a time of monstrosity? And how does the concept of the monster irradiate our thinking about queerness, disability, children and adolescents? From Twin Peaks to Leigh Bowery, Harmony Korine to Alice in Wonderland, This Young Monster gets high on a whole range of riotous art as its voice and form shape-shift, all in the name of dealing with the strange wonders of what Nabokov once called `monsterhood'. Ready or not, here they come...

              Going Postal: More Than 'Yes' or 'No'

              Throughout 2017 the queer and gender-diverse community of Australia undertook an incredible campaign of everyday activism around Marriage Equality. Individuals and collectives shared personal stories with their networks - from social media to workplace to school playground. Tears... and rage were purged - often documented as poems, photos, short stories, status updates, tweets, blog posts, political cartoons, and short videos. Many were shocked at the vitriol directed at `Yes' voters - to faces, in letterboxes and online, even in `secret' Facebook groups. By the end, many were truly exhausted. And yes, the legislation went through. Yes, more people can get married now. But many have been left wondering whether it was worth it. Many are living with the ongoing grief of having their lives and those of their loved ones up for public debate. In this vigorously edited collection, readers are guided through the highs and lows of the Marriage Equality Postal Vote. The contents are sticky and sometimes traumatic, but there is also catharsis in this compilation. Importantly, this is a counter-archive that consciously privileges some of the voices that were drowned out by dominant campaigns - those that questioned the value of marriage as a patriarchal institution, or resisted the `we are just like you' discourses that obscured complex families and queer ways of loving.
