50 Short Short Stories by Young New Zealanders
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The stories in this collection have been chosen from those entered in a competition in which writers eighteen years of age or younger were asked to submit a story of 500 words or less. The 50 selected entries are wonderful examples of the short short story, in which compression and subtlety rule. The themes include all the joys and concerns of daily life: peer pressure, rivalry, first love, and questions of identity and belonging; of moving or subtle relationships with friends and family. Serious issues such as anorexia and drug addiction are explored, but there is also much humour in stories which tease and surprise. This entertaining collection presents a fascinating and diverse range of styles and settings by young writers from all corners of New Zealand.
