Collected Stories


The internationally acclaimed stories from Dislocations and Isobars are presented here with seven previously uncollected stories, four of which were included in the twenty-five 'Best Short Stories in English' in their year of publication.

Janette Turner Hospital's sensuous prose reveals the inner lives of a fascinating gallery of characters caught between cultures. Some cross borders of class, gender and race, dislocated in unfamiliar and unpredictable physical worlds; others cross borders between the past and the present, blurring memory and perception in moments of crisis and illumination.
