Bright Lights, No City

Bright Lights, No City

Author: various contributors, ed. Sisonke Msimang

Publisher: Margaret River PressĀ 

This slender volume of eight stories is the result of a storytelling project undertaken by the Centre for Stories, and is a joint publishing project in conjunction with Margaret River Press. Four of the voices were recorded in audio and transcribed, with the other four the result of writing and workshopping with author and academic Susan Midalia. These voices are moving, sad, funny, brave and honest, and demand deep contemplation. Born from the silence and stricture of a morally conservative rural Australia, they speak strongly and combine to form a powerful document from voices that might otherwise not be heard.
