‘A Man Made Entirely of Bats’ is a collection of short stories and flash fiction by one of Australia’s newest voices. Comedic and absurd, these stories are an entertaining exploration of the concept of super heroes and of the super strange in our world.
‘I love Patrick’s stories because he seems to think a bit differently to everybody else. He strolls down the shoreline picking up seashells and gold coins and gemstones as well as bottle caps, discarded pantyhose, broken dreams and crisp packets and he makes them all play together in his wild sandcastle. Patrick is a bit like a child who knows way too much and also has a degree in poetics. Do not read this on the bus if you have a primal fear of laughing loudly in front of strangers.’ ZOE NORTON LODGE (Story Club, ABC TV's The Checkout & The Media Circus)
‘Despite – or, perhaps, because of – a recurring preoccupation with the television show Friends, A Man Made Entirely of Bats is a consistent laugh-riot.’SIAN CAMPBELL, Scum Mag
