‘Manning is a writer with a unique voice whose work is pushing the boundaries of contemporary short fiction.’ Paddy O’Reilly

Mary Manning’s exciting debut collection includes a Goth clutching a homemade tart on a Melbourne tram, an old lady camping out on a medium strip and a wife who follows her trainspotting husband into his dreams. A person fitting on a suburban train challenges the equilibrium of urbane commuters and the weird guy jotting down words in the mall is about to commit an unspeakable crime. In fractured worlds of the future, sexual partners are purchased and returned like commodities and language as we know it is dealt a body blow.

You'll get:
  • an ebook in Kindle-compatible mobi format
  • a DRM-free ePub (compatible with iPhone/iPad, Kobo, Nook, and Readmill)

  • Damaged in Transit short stories Mary Manning
