baby is this wonderland?
by Jeanne Bernhardt

baby is this wonderland?

baby is this wonderland? is the first book of short fiction by Dunedin writer, Jeanne Bernhardt. Blending prose and poetry in a compelling and original form, Bernhardt's stories burn with a fierce beauty that both dazzles and saddens.

'Dunedin writer Jeanne Bernhardt's first book of short fiction is brilliant! The fifteen stories lay bare the anatomy of life with appalling force and honesty.' - Critic

'Drawing on junkie king Bill Burroughs and with shades of Kathy Acker, Bernhardt's subject and style are a well-travelled literary path but with her intense insight and assured rhythms she creates work and a beauty in squalor that is all her own.' - City Voice
