Event description
Join Bacchus Marsh resident and author Wayne Marshall as he launches his debut short story collection "Shirl", published by Affirm Press.

About this Event

Shirl is a contemporary short story collection, shortlisted for the 2019 Victorian Premier's Literary Award for an Unpublished Manuscript.

In Shirl, Wayne Marshall takes a range of what-if scenarios to their fabulist and comedic extremes. Superbly inventive and powerful, these fourteen stories skewer contemporary Australian society – particularly the crisis of masculinity and national identity – in insightful and yet hilarious ways, blurring the line between fantasy and reality. Slightly warped and darkly comic, this astounding collection will make you rethink what it means to be Australian.

The event will be MC'd by Bacchus Marsh author Jem Tyley-Miller.
