AWW22 Love Stories - Trent Dalton Adelaide Writers' Week

    • Books

Chaired by Nicole Abadee

The genesis of Trent Dalton’s Love Stories was a blue Olivetti typewriter and a street corner in the Brisbane CBD. After inheriting the typewriter from the mother of a friend, Trent took to the streets and solicited real stories from passers-by: “Sentimental writer collecting love stories. Do you have one to share?” The result is a warm, poignant, funny and deeply humane book that weaves the many stories that were shared about love in all its guises with generous memories of Trent’s own special moments.
