'The Memory of Marble' is a collection of ten stories that examine the boundaries we create between passion and obsession. The people in the stories seek refuge from emotions by cocooning themselves in the worlds of books, pianos, art, and fingerprints. A dying man imagines he can smell the history of graveside monuments, a fresco restorer battles madness as his diseased skin appears on the paintings he loves, and a blind book collector's world collapses when he discovers an insect incubating on a page. They inhabit arcane worlds that explode with sensation and sensuality. Praise for THE MEMORY OF MARBLE ..".has the quality of an exquisite mathematical equation" Fiona Capp on the story 'Temperament'. "An amazing story, really arouses the tactile responses of the reader. My fingertips tingled" Ania Walwicz on the story 'Cocoon' ."proposes complex inner states of human consciousness through simple objects and the conglomerates of everyday life.This is the kind of domestic drama that reaches the proportions of the unknowable universe." Ania Walwicz on the story 'The Clock Collector' "shows sensitive understanding." Colleen Geebel, Judge of the Sunshine Coast 7th Annual Short Story Competition "Imaginative and beautifully developed" Lyn Hatherly Wilson, Judge of the Mount Isa Annual Literary Competition
