Measured, Silk & Other Stories
Loneliness is worse than smoking …

A small crocheted pink dress falls out of the bag she is carrying, but the woman doesn’t notice and keeps walking.

It may seem like a lot now, $5,700 for the day, but in the long run it will save you money.

& Other Stories
The door shuts behind them with a quiet click.

‘The description of the everyday so luminous, unapologetic and joyous it feels like salvation.’ – Angela Readman, author of Don’t Try This at Home and The Girls are Pretty Crocodiles

‘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 of Smokehouse, 2022 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Fiction
