Pictures by Goya and other Stories

Author(s): Vincent O'Sullivan

New Zealand Fiction

In this collection of short stories from Vincent O'Sullivan, the characters find themselves at points of crisis - domestic, emotional, somethimes comic. These sharply observed, artful narratives test the borders of experience and imagination, confronting the assessment of memory. The characters are left to deal with recollections - variously ironic, untrustworthy, sentimental and affirming. The stories attend, in a characteristically O'Sullivan manner, to a surprisingly wide interpretation of what New Zealand lives may mean. The 'ordinary' is presented with a hard-edged compassion. First published January 2006.
