2022 Indie Winner: Love Stories by Trent Dalton (Hardcover) – Our Review (Signed copies available!)


Our Review…
Trent Dalton, multi-award winning journalist, author of the splendid Boy Swallows Universe and All the Shimmering Skies and all-round great bloke (yes, I have met him over a wine) set up his old Olivetti typewriter on a busy Brisbane city street corner and over two months asked complete strangers to tell him a love story
By some miracle, 100 more strangers stopped and told me love stories from the bottom of their ­pandemic-wearied hearts…. You wouldn’t believe the stories people tell you when you take the time to listen.

Love Stories is by turns uplifting and heartbreaking, funny and whimsical and at times brings a tear. Above all it’s a very humane account of love in all its forms. It would make a terrific gift for yourself or someone close to your heart, especially if they need a lift in these fraught times.
