Peer through the windows and doors on Plane Tree Drive to find a streetscape that is humorous, heartbreaking, real and surreal. Here, the loneliness of domestic isolation and the joy of connection weave together to form an interlaced map of suburban life.
‘With each story in this complex fresco, layers are peeled away and others added, slowly revealing a delicate portrait of hurts and hopes, vulnerability and strength. Plane Tree Drive is a stunning and sensitive exploration of people, place and relationships.’
–Michelle Wright, author of Fine
‘Plane Tree Drive is a highly original and moving collection… Picking and prodding at the human condition in all its everyday passions, neuroses, sadnesses and kindnesses, these are superb stories that can be read again and again. Most highly recommended!’
–Professor Donna Lee Brien
‘Beautifully written in a wide range of styles and voices, Plane Tree Drive is a bold and innovative collection of short fiction from an exciting new talent.’
–Ryan O’Neill, author of Their Brilliant Careers
