Monster

A$9.99
Puncher & Wattmann

Description:

Charting surreal and yet familiar worlds where hope and horror co-exist, Monster is ruthless, weird, dark and funny. These 32 stories explore loss, addiction, love and breakdown with unsentimental economy. Stories concern mothers losing or leaving children, relationships dangling by a thread or exploding. Some characters are institutionalised, others are profoundly lonely. Some just wander around - lost, while others are filled with shocking violence. There is joy here, too, and a kind of blazing intimacy in this debut collection of tough, tender and unflinching stories.
 
Ashleigh Synnott lives in Sydney. Her stories, poems and essays have appeared in publications such as Meanjin, Overland, the Long Paddock, and Antipodes. Monster is her first book.
 
"Synnott has a rare gift for mixing light and dark, a love of outsiders and of inner worlds that soon becomes addictive. The stories in Monster pierce the skin, pick at wounds, and break through to the mysteries of embodiment and desire with a strange power. This is a writer who's not afraid to aim for the guts." - Jennifer Mills
 
"Monster takes us into unexpected corners of the imagination, a place inhabited by misfits and dreamers, innocents and lost souls, who take us by out necks and shake us around." - Debra Adelaide
 
"An astonishing writer. Synnott's immense empathy for her outsiders and her fearless ear reminded me of George Saunders." - Delia Falconer
 
"Strange, haunting, beautiful." - Sunil Badami

Mostly Guilty
A Low-flying Barrister's Working Life
Michael Challinger
9781925736557
2021-03-01
A$11.99
Hybrid Publishers

(click here for links)

Description:

A book for the general reader rather than lawyers, this often tongue-in-cheek account of Michael Challinger's interactions with the criminals he defends gives a first-hand account of the quirky nature of human beings.
Mostly Guilty deals with the workings of the lowest level of the Australian legal system. It's about the down-to-earth cases that happen daily in Magistrates' Courts. It does so through the experiences and anecdotes of a low-flying criminal barrister. While the cases are from Victoria, the book makes reference to other states and has relevance and interest Australia-wide.
The style is light, punchy and informal, with lots of direct speech and many funny yarns. Some of the book is tongue-in-cheek (and even politically incorrect) but it also makes serious points throughout. It's entertaining as well as informative.
The chapters are short, and generally deal with specific offences (shop theft, for example) or areas of law (bail). Others  recount particular cases in an ironic or colourful way. Most cases are of low to medium criminality so the light-hearted tone is not inappropriate.
Most legal memoirs are by big-shot advocates or retired judges. Mostly Guilty is different, and doesn't take itself too seriously.
 
Michael Challinger still practises as a criminal barrister at the Melbourne Bar. He spent eight years as a lawyer in Papua New Guinea and also practised in London. He's a music lover and keen traveller, having visited more than 120 countries. He lives in Melbourne.
