    White Turtle

    Merlinda Bobis

    Winner, National Book Award, Fiction, 1999
    An anomalous kiss. A white turtle ferrying the dreams of the dead. A working siesta in a five-star hotel. A woman’s 12-meter hair trawling corpses from a river. Or a queue of longings in Darlinghurst. These enigmatic tales of chance and hope are among 23 stories set in the Philippines and Australia. Alternately mythic, wistful or quirky, Merlinda Bobis’s tales resonate with an original and confident storytelling voice.
