This month sees the release of Bait and Switch and Other Stories by Ashley Sievwright – Bent Street contributor and consulting fiction editor.
Eight stories of love, friendship, and indifference.
From teenage memories of staying with a cross-dressing cousin in Kings Cross, to estranged siblings scattering the ashes of a family member, not to mention perplexing encounters in Jordan, these eight stories reflect on family, friendship, desire and belonging and the ‘weight of inherited sorrow’ that each of us carries.
Ashley Sievwright is the author of the novels The Shallow End (Shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers Prize Best First Novel) and Walter; and co-author of the non-fiction A Year of Lighthouses and Another Year of Lighthouses. Ashley Sievwright lives in Melbourne.
Also available from all online platforms (Amazon, Booktopia etc, Apple, Kindle, Google Play), or order through your bookshop. Bookshops and libraries can order through Lightning Source.
Given the COVID 19 restrictions we are hoping to have some innovative launch events later.
Bait and Switch and Other Stories by Ashley Sievwright is published by Clouds of Magellan Press, publisher of Bent Street. Clouds of Magellan is open to manuscript submissions from Bent Street contributors only.
