Approximate Life: The Prince and Other Stories

by Approximate Life: The Prince and Other Stories
genre Short Stories

Approximate Life: The Prince and Other Stories brings together three acclaimed collections for the first time. Letters to Francesca (1996), The Prince (1997) and Duckness (1998) range across forms, from short story to novella and screenplay, and from surrealism to hyperreality-connected by common characters as well as themes of identity, authenticity and artifice. They are playful and poignant, satirical and serious, with echoes of Borges and Calvino grounded in a distinctly Australian perspective.

‘Witty, playful, cheeky, dazzled by the possibilities of allusion and illusion…’
—Giles Gordon, The Times
