Dodging the Bull/Mitchell, Paul/Paper/1862547491/S004-E
‘This is rugged, strong writing with tonnes of character. It’s for people who think life hurts, rewards, bends, breaks and redeems.’ – Martin Flanagan.
Paul Mitchell throws a spanner into daily lives and watches his characters pick up the pieces. From the Bali bombings to the difficulties of unorthodox sexuality in a closed-minded community, Mitchell’s stories are socially aware and compassionate, but also confronting and progressive.
Shifting with ease between vernacular and lyricism, Dodging the Bull chronicles the lives of honest Australians confronted by the rift between ignorance and compassion that threatens to divide today’s multi-layered society.
Paul Mitchell’s short fiction has appeared in many anthologies and he has won numerous awards, including a 2007 Australia Council writing fellowship.
