In this stunning collection, internationally acclaimed writer David Malouf gives us bookish boys and taciturn men, strong women and wayward sons, fathers and daughters, lovers and husbands, a composer and his muse. These are their stories, whole lives brought dramatically into focus and powerfully rooted in the vividly rendered landscape of the vast Australian continent. Malouf writes about men and women looking for something they seem to have missed, or missed out on, puzzling over not only their own lives but also the place they have come to occupy in the lives of others.
This single volume gathers both a new collection of Malouf's short fiction, Every Move You Make, and all of his previously published stories.

“Beautiful, haunting, harsh, these are tales of men and women, girls and boys all coming of age at every age through the their connection to the land and each other.”
—The Baltimore Sun
“Humorous and sobering, sensitive and brutal, cosmopolitan and regional. . . . Belongs on the same shelf with the short fiction of John Cheever, Eudora Welty, Alice Munro. These are tales to be read and reread.”
