Kitchen Sink Drama

Paul Connolly,

Kitchen Sink Drama
 
 

As seen in Good Weekend: one hundred of Paul Connolly’s beloved one-hundred-word vignettes along with Jim Pavlidis’s whimsical illustrations.

From tempestuous family roasts to the first blooms of young love, from relationship missteps to moments of familial joy, Kitchen Sink Drama reflects domestic life in all its messy, delightful and humorous glory. With characters depicted in nuanced fullness, these poignant, pithy stories capture the truth at the heart of so many of our experiences—each one a glimpse of a whole world.

Kitchen Sink Drama is a collection of some of the finest writing on the human condition.

'I hate those Kitchen Sink Dramas. They’re so clever and funny and succinct, it kills me that I can’t come up with anything that good.’ Danny Katz

Kitchen Sink Drama is my ideal book. With a wonderful economy of language it perfectly captures our funny ways. The stories are so droll and the lovely pictures so wise.’ Jane Turner

‘Somehow, Paul Connolly manages to convey in 100 magic words what takes the rest of us thousands.’ Benjamin Law
