Description:

Perth in the 1950s. After being caught wearing his mother's yellow dress, young Victor had to hide any tendency towards gender inappropriate behaviour. But his interest in dancing and theatre (and mooning over Rudolph Nureyev on the telly) were bound to make the facade collapse at some point. Emerging sexuality and the sense of not being 'at home' in his body, let alone the world, ran alongside a search for meaning that brought him eventually to a spiritual awakening under the young guru Maharaji...
Part family tragedy, part existential comedy, The Boy in the Yellow Dress is a warts-and-all account of exile and the subsequent journey homewards that is less about finding a respectable place in the world than an intimate connection with the ultimate source of being.
If ever a memoir captured the Zeitgeist, it's this one... Wise, funny, surprising at every turn... More than a portrait of growing up gay, it chronicles the wild search for meaning of an entire generation.
Amanda Lohrey (2012 Patrick White Award Winner)

Description:

In 1994, Michael Bernard Kelly recorded six video lectures for the Erospirit Research Institute. The Erotic Contemplative charted a spirituality for gay and lesbian Christians grounded in the contemplative, mystical traditions of the church. Dr Joseph Kramer, who commissioned the lectures, writes: "His powerful words ... seemed to come straight from his heart and right into mine. I told Michael that he was offering transformative guidance, like Joseph Campbell did in his Hero's Journey. 'You have described the Mystic's Journey for Gay and Lesbian Christians.' "
The lectures, originally released in 1995, were digitised and re-released in 2020. Now this transcription of all the lectures is published for the first time, and includes a study guide to the series prepared by Michael Kelly.
"The Erotic Contemplative" is the most powerful and insightful study of Gay Spirituality that I know of. I have watched 'The Road from Emmaus' lecture three times, and still find new riches!" - John J. McNeill, PhD. Author of The Church and the Homosexual.

Description:

'It was one of the most perfect days, only just warm enough, an ever so slight breeze I could see in the hairs on my arm and in the flutter of the flags across each end of the pool but couldn't feel. It must have been the exact temperature of my blood.'
On a cloudless afternoon, a man dives into a crowded swimming pool and disappears. Is it murder, a staged disappearance or alien abduction?
The Shallow End - a steady freestyle commentary on sex, celebrity and suntanning.
The Shallow End was shortlisted in the 2009 Commonwealth Writers Prize.

Description:

Walter Kovak - insurance worker, early forties, unhappily married, no children, memorably invisible - is the sole survivor of a devastating suburban train crash. But Walter has no memory of the tragedy.
One year on he starts to receive mysterious random warnings from strangers - warnings that could again save his life. And his memory of the fateful day begins to return.
Ashley Sievwright lives, works and writes in Melbourne. His first novel, The Shallow End, was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers' Prize Best First Book in 2009.
Reviews of The Shallow End:
'... an impressively fresh voice in Australian fiction... The Shallow End is a little gem of a novel and deserves to be widely read.' - The Canberra Times
'Both witty and easy to read... filled with moments of droll sagacity... evocative prose and cynical humour are Sievwright's strengths...' - Australian Book Review
