This collection of prize-winning short stories opens up worlds of small, finely observed detail, which resonate in the reader's mind long after the story is finished. From the awkward strain of dissolving relationships to the revealing vagaries of chance occurrences upon ordinary people, the voices that inhabit these worlds speak eloquently of the hidden motivations that propel us all to act. Often without realising it, these characters hold in their hands both the consequences of small decisions and - sometimes - the power of life and death.

About the Author:

Cate Kennedy is an award-winning writer who has twice won the Age short story competition. 'Cold Snap', which appears in Dark Roots, was published in the New Yorker. She is also the author of the travel memoir Sing and Don't Cry: A Mexican Journal and two poetry collections. She is currently at work on her first novel.

Review:

"'Dark Roots announces the arrival of a major talent... Cate Kennedy has a near pitch-perfect voice and a feeling for the precise moment when stars move in the cosmos.' Peter Temple, Age 'Stunning... incredibly spare and gifted writing. This collection is a joy to read.' Sunday Age 'A revelation... dark, moody, funny and provocative, often in the same story.' Australian"
