Abstract
A lonely woman helps a beautiful man in the midst of Mardi Gras; a suburban father imagines a prehistoric egg to be his ticket out of a loser’s life; a monkey puppet returns an elderly woman to a childhood secret. Fabulous Lives is a collection of short stories spanning Australia and other continents. It embraces people with all their frailties and strengths, failures and hopes, as they reach critical junctures in their lives. Both funny and heart-rending, these 16 stories follow the struggles of life's outsiders - the sick, the lonely, the poor and the ugly - as they try to find hope and belonging in a hostile world. These stories juxtapose the marvellous and mythical with the quotidian, the whimsical and surreal with the everyday, bringing the motley cast of characters to moments of revelation and, perhaps, re-evaluation.
