Author(s): Linley Jones
Linley Jones combines many settings and themes in her first collection of short stories, covering a wide range of human emotions and settings - From the joys of a NZ childhood-the stink of rotten eggs gathered for eeling; the fossicking for treasure in the flotsam and jetsam on the beach; the challenges of growing up; and the poignancy of being 'somewhere towards the end' and the gradual decline into old age and death- to the brashness and bold raw beauty of New World Australia contrasting with Old World Europe and the dizzying excitement and charm of Turkey.
This is Linley Jones' first collection of adult short stories. Her previous books are junior fiction; Net Navigator, Making Waves, On the Edge. She lives in Auckland between her lovely house and garden and on her yacht Campari.
