Author Talk: Justine Sless

Justine discusses her new collection of short stories exploring loneliness, community and domestic life.

Thursday 30 May | 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm | St Kilda Library

In 14 linked stories set in the streets of Melbourne, comedian and writer Justine Sless meditates on themes of loneliness, domesticity and identity. Justine's writing is spare and lyrical but infused with emotional insight, generosity and humour.

"Infused with the inescapable weight of loneliness, these subtly interconnected stories reveal the momentary solace found in small rituals and everyday kindnesses. Lyrical and spare, Sless's prose etches an emotional heft so deep that it almost feels like a sleight of hand. Their soft tracings have left indelible marks on my heart."
Melissa Manning, Author of Smokehouse (Victorian Premier's Literary Award for Fiction).

Justine will be joined by writer and reviewer Stella Glorie.
