Love Stories: Unabridged edition
Trent Dalton, Australia’s best-loved writer, sat on a busy street corner with a sky-blue Olivetti typewriter and asked the world a simple, direct question: Can you please tell me a love story?
A blind man yearns to see the face of his wife of 30 years. A divorced mother has a secret affair with a travelling priest. A widower miraculously finds a three-minute video recorded by his wife before she died. A lumberjack’s heart falls in a forest. A working mum contemplates taking the photographs of her late husband down from the fridge. A girl writes her last letter to the grandfather she adored, then sets it on fire. A palliative care nurse helps a dying woman converse with the angel at the end of her bed. A renowned 100-year-old scientist ponders the one great earthly puzzle he was never able to solve: What is love?
Endless stories. Human stories. Love stories.
