What do our best wordsmiths have to say about Australian icons? This anthology takes a fresh look at everything from the HIH collapse to crocs, Margaret Olley, bush burials and the ABC. We visit a post-apocalyptic Opera House and spend Saturday night in downtown Byron Bay. Tones range from nostalgic to sceptical, from wry to LOL.

Featuring prose poetry and microfiction by Mark O’Flynn, Anna Kerdijk Nicholson, Michael Sharkey, Moya Costello and many more.

Cover art and design by Bettina Kaiser.
