Michelle Wright's stories are beautifully drawn portals into complex, layered, sometimes painful worlds ... Every story surprised me in a different way; I was by turns, unsettled, saddened, delighted and uplifted.' Sofie Laguna, Miles Franklin-winning author of The Eye of the Sheep

Fine shines a light into the quiet corners of human life. By observing the traumas, doubts and isolation of its characters, the book reveals the strength and fragility of people and relationships.

These stories explore the silent sorrows, desires and regrets that we choose to hide when we say that we are 'fine'. As they describe moments big and small in the lives of ordinary people, they invite us to think about who we are when no one is looking.

By illuminating these quiet moments in ordinary lives, Michelle Wright follows in a tradition which includes Olga Masters, Amy Witting and Alice Munro. Many of these stories have won Australian and international awards, and this collection was shortlisted for the Victorian Premier's Award for an Unpublished Manuscript. Fine is a remarkable debut of stunning grace, breadth and beauty.

'Fine is indeed a welcome new contribution to the Australian short fiction renaissance.' Maxine Beneba Clarke, award-winning author of Foreign Soil

'I was absorbed in every story's world. Utterly real and moving ... Wright creates whole worlds in a few pages of sharp tuneful prose.' Paddy O'Reilly, award-winning author of Peripheral Vision
