Measured Silk & Other Stories - signed copy


14 linked stories - a meditation on loneliness.
'Lyrical and spare, Sless's prose etches an emotional heft so deep that it almost feels like a sleight of hand. Infused with the inescapable weight of loneliness, these subtly interconnected stories reveal the momentary solace found in small rituals and everyday kindnesses.'
Melissa Manning Author Smokehouse (2022 Victorian Premier's Literary Award for Fiction)

'Ordinary details shine, the domestic sparkles with wit, this is a writer who understands that behind every joke is a sad story told with a grin. The description of the everyday so luminous, unapologetic and joyous it feels like salvation.'
Angela Readman (author of Don't Try This at Home, & The Girls are Pretty Crocodiles)

'Sless writes with a beguiling blend of intimacy and darkness in this absorbing collection of stories about relationships and loneliness and escape. Alison Moore (author The Lighthouse Man Booker Shortlist)
