This anthology including over forty Australian authors explores the theme of time in a range of its personal and political manifestations.
Perhaps time is the best possible theme for an anthology of micro-fiction and prose poetry; it emphasises a small aperture, a modest economy, the sense this form can give of something particular standing in for the greater, messier and much harder-to-read larger world. Here, nothing is permanent, but so much is made of each particular perspective and of the raw beauty inherent in change.
JULIENNE VAN LOON
Time is filled with a fascinating variety of meditations on the fourth dimension. Time here is deep time, ancestral time, the elided time of memory, the looping time of held trauma. Sometimes it fails to run at all. Mostly it refuses to last.
