Damien Wilkin’s launch speech for Bill Manhire’s short story collection: ‘I think of these stories as ludic on the outside but ferocious in their hidden centres.’

Great launch speech!

It’s not a bad way to approach this book – to listen for the tune as much anything. Because while it’s true that these beguiling, discomforting stories take many strange and sudden turns, I was struck all over again by how hummable they are, how they stick to the ear and the mind.’
