Faces and Voices: Collected Stories by Amy Witting

Faces and Voices presents the dazzling body of Amy Witting's acclaimed short fiction written and published over the last forty-five years.

Each of these unforgettable stories is a self-contained universe, populated with distinctive characters and haunted by irony. Witting's world is one of lonely single women, and of long-standing marriages tense with unspoken and unresolved differences; of farms and isolated country towns, and of the 'humming and glittering city of Sydney'; of the perplexities of childhood, and, equally, of the schoolteachers in whose charge those children are; of Australia as it was more than half a century ago, and as it is in the present.

Fans of Isobel Callaghan, central character of Witting's Isobel novels, will be delighted to meet her again in the opening story, some eight years after her emergence from the sanatorium.
