About the Book
A lonely woman helps a beautiful man in the midst of Mardi Gras; a suburban father imagines a prehistoric egg to be his ticket out of a loser’s life; a monkey puppet returns an elderly woman to a childhood secret…
Fabulous Lives is a collection of short stories that embraces people with all their frailties and strengths, failures and hopes, as they reach critical junctures in their lives.
In a wry, wise voice, Bindy Pritchard juxtaposes the marvellous and mythical with the quotidian, the whimsical and surreal with the everyday, bringing her motley cast of characters to moments of revelation and, perhaps, re-evaluation.
Reviews and Press
‘Pritchard is never less than observant, wise and emotionally engaging. This collection heralds the arrival of a writer to watch.’—Writing WA
‘Pritchard is a storyteller, that much is clear, and one with a distinctly satisfying grasp on the human condition. Embrace these ordinary lives and stories, as she has, and you’ll find that they are indeed as fabulous as the title suggests.’—Westerly Magazine
‘At their core, the stories in Fabulous Lives are an exploration of what it means to be human, with all its failings and frailties, and in Pritchard’s assured and talented hands, these rich insights into the everyday become something almost other-worldly’.—The AU Review
