Things a Map Won't Show You: Stories from Australia and Beyond

Author: Susan La Marca & Pam Macintyre, Publisher: Penguin

An unforgettable collection of short fiction, poetry and comic art from Australia and beyond . . .

A boy who tries to fly, a cricket game in a refugee centre, a government guide to kissing, the perils of hunting goannas, an arranged marriage, an awkward blind date, a girl who stands on her head, an imprisoned king and a cursed Maori stone . . .

Sometimes funny, sometimes dramatic, always compelling, this collection featuring both established writers and emerging talent will broaden your horizons and excite your imagination.
