For Christmas my mother, an avid reader, gave me David Malouf's latest release The Complete Stories and I've been delving into it when the urge for a bedtime story takes me... I'm being reminded how much I love his writing! An Imaginary Life is still one of my favourite pieces of writing, and one which warrants a re-read soon actually!
I discovered Malouf, one of my all time favourite writers, back at school when we studied his first novel Johnno. One of my good friend's parents were writers and knew him personally and so I had the honour to shake his hand as he presented me with a prize I'd won in my final year at school.
