Fabulous Lives is a collection of short stories spanning Australia and other continents. It embraces people with all their frailties and strengths, failures and hopes, as they reach critical junctures in their lives.

Both funny and heart-rending, these 16 stories follow the struggles of life's outsiders — the sick, the lonely, the poor and the ugly — as they try to find hope and belonging in a hostile world.

'The stories are both generous and devastating. Somehow I feel both emptied and sated by them at the same time, like a fish that's been gutted then stuffed.' — Evan Fallenberg, award-winning Israeli writer
