              Winner of the prestigious $200,000 Windham-Campbell Prize and the Ockham New Zealand Book Award for Nonfiction. The second title in Giramondo's 'Southern Latitudes' series, focusing on innovative fiction and non-fiction by writers of the southern hemisphere. 'Calling to mind both... Joan Didion and Anton Chekhov, Young is relentless in her examination of herself and endlessly curious and compassionate in her consideration of the world. Can You Tolerate This? offers a glimpse into this extraordinarily promising writer's quest to seek in the small accidents of her individual life the outlines of a much larger reality.' Windham-Campbell Prize judges' citation Can You Tolerate This? is a collection of twenty-one personal essays that tell the story of a young woman growing up in a small New Zealand town and making her way as an adult into the wider world. Young roams freely from preoccupation to preoccupation: the music scenes in regional New Zealand, family relations, eccentric characters, the desire for physical transformation - trying to find some measure of clarity amid uncertainty. How to bear each moment of experience: the inconsequential as well as the shattering? Her essays turn on unlikely connections that reveal strange resonances, shifting perspective with a dry, ironic perception and lightness of wit.

              Age range 13+ Meet Tariq Nader, leader of 'The Wolf Pack' at Punchbowl High, who has been commanded by the new principal to join a football competition with his mates in order to rehabilitate the public image of their school. When the team is formed, Tariq learns there's a major ...catch - half of the team is made up of white boys from Cronulla, aka enemy territory - and he must compete with their strongest player for captaincy of the team. At school Tariq thinks he has life all figured out until he falls for a new girl called Jamila, who challenges everything he thought he knew. At home, his outspoken ways have brought him into conflict with his family. Now, with complications on all fronts, he has to dig deep to control his anger, and find what it takes to be a leader. In confronting and often hilarious situations, Tariq's relationships with his extended Lebanese family and his friends are tested like never before, and he comes to learn that his choices can have serious consequences. 'Rawah Arja has written one of the best Australian novels I have ever read...not just because the writing sparkles even as it packs a punch, but because this is the kind of novel that shows us what Australia really is.' - Randa Abdel-Fattah

              This Water: Five Tales

              This Water: Five Tales (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              This is likely to be the last work by Beverley Farmer, one of Australia's great prose stylists, and a pioneer of women's writing, in her exploration of feminine concerns, and her use of different literary forms - novel, short story, poetry, essay, journal, myth and fairy tale. Th...is Water is a collection of five tales, three of them novella length, each a fragmentary love story with a nameless woman at the centre, and a mythic dimension (Greek or Celtic, folklore or fable) rooted in the power of nature. Water and stone, ice and fire, light and darkness play an important role in all the stories, as do other motifs, closely related to women's experience, blood, birth, possession and release, marriage and singularity. One tale, set on the south coast of Victoria, is animated by the legend of the Great Silkie, following Sylvia Plath and Joan Baez; another finds its rebellious princess in Lake Annaghmakerrig in Ireland; a third has Clytemnestra as its central figure, mourning the daughter sacrificed by her husband Agamemnon so that he can go to war with Troy. The stories contain and reflect and shadow one other: in each the women speak, act, think for themselves, in opposing or escaping from situations ordained by authority. Beverley Farmer is the author of three collections of short stories, including Milk, which won the NSW Premier's Award for Fiction,the writer's notebook A Body of Water, and two novels The Seal Woman and The House in the Light, which was shortlisted for the Miles Franklin Award. Her most recent book, The Bone House, a collection of three long essays on the life of the body and the life of the mind, was published by Giramondo in 2005. 'Farmer uses language arrestingly, and is arrested by it, and imparts this throughout to her reader.' Sara Dowse 'An extraordinarily gifted and original talent' The Age 'Farmer's prose, plangently beautiful and vivid with seashore and season, like poetry, invites dipping into and savouring again and again.'
