These are tales of fugitive lives: dazzling portraits of women and men on the run; from their present, their past, their future – from themselves…

Here, finally, is the complete collection of short fiction from award-winning author Wendy James. Holding a discerning mirror to seemingly ordinary lives, James captures recurring themes of love, betrayal, passion and guilt to show just how vulnerable and intricate the human heart really is.

Whether narrating from the living room of a contemporary marriage, from the wheel of a desperate getaway car, or while composing an elaborate diversion in 18th century Salzburg, James has the rare ability to wryly comment on humankind with unnerving clarity and precision.

Author

Wendy James

Wendy James wrote OUT OF THE SILENCE as a major component of a PhD in Creative Writing at Deakin University in Victoria, Australia. She spent eighteen months researching the era and its events, and while the book has been faithful to the historical period as possible, it is ultimately an imaginary work of fiction.
