The ultra short works of Frankie McMillan

From Standing Room Only, 2:36 pm on 2 October 2022

Frankie McMillan explores wandering in all kinds of ways - through landscapes and through life - in her new collection of short and ultra short stories, The Wandering Nature of Us Girls.

Many are based on snatches of her own memory, growing up with the freedom to take off with her sisters.

But for others she's started imagining the lives of others, including Annie Edson who miraculously survived toppling down Niagara Falls inside a barrel in 1901.
This is the award winning Christchurch writer's sixth book, and she's a two-time winner of the New Zealand Flash Fiction Day competition.  

Frankie chats with Lynn Freeman and reads from The Wandering Nature of Us Girls.

Frankie McMillan's short story collection The Wandering Nature of Us Girls is a Canterbury University Press publication.
