Ranging from tender poignancy to wry humour, Trick of the Light is the beguiling debut short story collection from one of Australia’s rising stars, Laura Elvery.
With a keen eye for detail and rich emotional insight, Laura reveals the fears and fantasies of everyday people searching for meaning. An art teacher sends four of her students on a guerrilla mission. A young runner struggles to make sense of his best friend’s death. A health-food company adopts a farcical promotional strategy. A factory worker spends her days applying radioactive paint to watches, while dreaming of a future with her new suitor.
Laura’s work has been published in Review of Australian Fiction, Kill Your Darlings and Griffith Review. She has won the Neilma Sidney Short Story Prize, the Josephine Ulrick Prize for Literature and the Margaret River Short Story Competition, and has been shortlisted for numerous awards including the Queensland Literary Award for an unpublished manuscript.
Join Laura as she discusses short story writing and her publishing journey. Books will be available for purchase on the day, or bring your copy from home for Laura to sign.
