Sometimes comic, sometimes tragic, this short-story collection is always startlingly original. Dazzlingly inventive and devastatingly true to life, The Weight of a Human Heart turns the rules of storytelling on their head. A series of graphs illustrates the disintegration of a marriage, step by excruciating step. A literary stoush - and an affair - play out in the book review section of a national newspaper. The heartbreaking story of a Rwandan boy is hidden in the pages of his English exam paper.; A young girl learns her mother's distrubing secrets through the broken key on a typewriter. Ranging from Australia to Africa to China and back again, The Weight of a Human Heart heralds a fresh new voice in Australian literature.
