Endorsed by Cate Kennedy, this is an eagerly awaited first story collection from an acclaimed young writer. The award-winning stories in The Rest is Weight reflect Mills’ years in Central Australia, as well as her travels to Mexico, Russia and China. The collection displays a confident diversity of narrative voices and a brevity in style. In 'The wind and other children', a girl searches for her lost grandmother while her parents quarrel at home; in 'Extra time', a man contemplates inertia after toxic contamination changes life in a remote Australian town; a woman imagines a mother’s love for her autistic son in 'The air you need'; and in 'Hello, Satan', a boy awaits his destiny at a roundabout at midnight, on the edge of a small town. In exploring the human, Jennifer Mills deftly weaves themes of longing, alienation, delusion, resilience, and love. Sometimes dreamy and hypnotic, sometimes comic and wry, these stories leave their mark. Collected or on their own, Mills’ fiction is both a joy and a wonder to read. Jennifer Mills is the author of two novels, Gone (UQP, 2011) and The Diamond Anchor (UQP, 2009), and a chapbook of poems, Treading Earth (Press Press, 2009). She won the 2008 Marian Eldridge Award for Young Emerging Women Writers, the Pacific Region of the 2008–9 Commonwealth Short Story Competition, and the 2008 Best Short Story Award in the Northern Territory Literary Awards. Her award-winning short stories have been widely published, and are collected for the first time in The Rest is Weight. Mills lives in South Australia.
