Slice of Life
Item type: Collection
Format: B Format Paperback
Paul Haines sliced through the Australian writing scene with his twisted and murderous black humour in 2002. He has since won many awards and praise for his dark and surreal stories. Paul places himself in stories that make you think twice about his sanity and good taste. 'Explicit, violent, mysogynistic and nasty... stories are heavily cemented in my real life, and I love blurring them into the unreal.'
Published here together for the first time are the Ditmar winning story, The Devil In Mr Pussy; the Aurealis Award shortlisted horror story Doof, Doof, Doof; and the complete Slice of Life series, including the previously unpublished Slice of Life-A Spot of Liver.
HAINES' SLIFE OF LIFE - seventeen glistening stories, sweating with twenty-first century paranoia and anxiety from the decaying mind of the winner of the 2005 Ditmar for New Talent.
"Exhuberant, profane and totally whacked out" - Ellen Datlow
"visceral and thoughtful, unashamedly masculine and unabashedly emotional, and beautifully and meticulously crafted" - Martin Livings
"the anxiety in these stories is palpable. Love the paranoia! Love the self loathing. Love the psychosis" - Aurealis: Australian Fantacy & Science Fiction
