'Funny, poignant, or black, and often all these at once, the stories work cumulatively as a compelling contemporary text about embodied experience.' — Marion Campbell Proudflesh is a book of stories about bodies — various, human, vulnerable — and the histories they carry with them like suitcases that must eventually arrive, even if 'last seen in Athens'. In that arrival, anything may happen, including the possibility of love. Stylish, perceptive and highly readable, Proudflesh is a fine introduction to the powerful writing of this best selling writer who was short listed for the Miles Franklin Literary Award.
