WINNER OF THE 2018 CARMEL BIRD DIGITAL LITERARY AWARD

Beth Spencer’s new and expanded edition of her award-winning collection, The Age of Fibs, crosses boundaries of genre, time, history and desire; meditating on how we create ourselves through culture and stories, and why it matters.

An Angel is suspended in protest beneath a forest-green canopy; a girl watches Bewitched and dreams of being part of a coven; a man struggles to wrest back control of his story; and the cast of Fatal Attraction are let loose on the streets of Newtown. Memories of football and class, museums, tv families, barbie dolls, and growing up in the age of Fibs bras and the rise and fall of the Whitlam government.

‘Often playful, albeit serious, The Age of Fibs moves across the personal, the historical, the romantic, giving the reader vivid insights into the small and large moments of the human story. It was a great pleasure to encounter this gem.’ – Carmel Bird

‘Spencer’s work brims with energetic, provocative, and idiosyncratically stylish writing.’ – Felicity Plunkett
