Deleted Scenes for Lovers
Tracey Slaughter
Victoria University Press, $30

Tracey Slaughter’s daring short fiction deposits you on a rollercoaster, hoists you in the air, puts you in a dank, dark cupboard to eavesdrop, spins you round and round, makes you feel things to the nth degree.

Her short fiction has won awards, attracted widespread admiration in journals for years; Deleted Scenes for Lovers is her second collection.

She teaches creative writing at the University of Waikato. If the quality and originality of writing is a yardstick for the quality and originality of a creative writing teacher, then students should flock to Slaughter’s courses. This book is something special.
