In sparkling prose, Sonja Dechian's profound, moving and wry stories speak to our deepest yearning for connection and the inevitability of our isolation.
From a terrorist cell of cyber-bullying victims working to annihilate the digital memory of their humiliation to a pandemic that leaves grieving parents battling for the media spotlight, these affecting tales invite us to examine our inability to control the world around us-and our own desires.
An Astronaut's Life is a beautiful debut from an intelligent new voice in Australian writing.
Sonja Dechian is a writer, editor, and radio and TV producer. She has co-edited two collections of stories about the Australian refugee experience, Dark Dreams and No Place Like Home (Wakefield Press).

'[It's] great reading the work of such an inventive writer, and I'm incredibly interested to see where she takes us next.' Readings
