“This landmark collection brings together the best Australian short stories written in the twentieth century.  From early bush life, through the Depression and the Second World War, to the fast lane of urban contemporary existence, Australian short-story writers have explored and reflected our national identity and experience.  The Penguin Century of Australian Stories represents, in one volume, tour finest writers in all their modes: the lively comic fiction of Henry Lawson and Steele Rudd, the distinctive imaginations of Christina Stead and Patrick White, the experimental style of Peter Carey, and the highly lyrical prose of Brenda Wlaker and James Bradley.”
