"What a bruising collection of short stories this is...
Franklin turns a coolly amused and beautifully composed eye on the darkest, saddest, oddest and most ordinary corners of the world." - Sonya Hartnett
An unsettling collection that is both challenging and funny- and always arresting.
Dip into the world of Bob Franklin's fiction at your own risk. The clam surface belies a swift undertow and snags galore. These are not horror stories in the traditional sense; they are more unsettling than that.
These are tales of unease, set in familiar surrounds and whispered in your ear by a friendly and charismatic stranger. They are journeys into the darkness of the human psyche and powerful critiques of contemporary Australia society.
Bob Franklin pokes and prods at human fears and foibles, revealing with forensic glee truths that you might prefer were, well, left under stones.
Bob Franklin is a renowned comedian and actor. You might recognise him from The Librarians and Thank God You're Here. Under Stones is Bob's first book.
