Inkerman & Blunt, a small outfit in Melbourne, is to be congratulated if for nothing else than on the sheer scope of this ­endeavour. It is wonderful to see a publisher anywhere in the world committed to expanding the possibilities of a literary genre.Simon Caterson, The Australian.

You can’t write better than this. It’s simply perfect.
—Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic and Eat, Pray, Love

This floored me. The format is a game changer and the linked novellas combine to create the best book I’ve read in 12 years, since David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas. Earls has never had his due but if this doesn’t get incredible press from here to Timbuktu, then publishing truly is broken. Or maybe he just fixed it, because Wisdom Tree is a transcendent wonder.—Chris FlynnA Tiger in Eden and The Glass Kingdom

Stories come in different sizes, and the five novellas that are Wisdom Tree by Nick Earls proves that sometimes, 20,000 words is just the right size. For each novella there is another story—the story that inspired it. This live multi-media event reveals the stories behind the stories, featuring a taste of each novella from the audiobook editions, and visuals that range from family holiday pic, K-Pop star Psy, a certificate of hospital admission under the Lunacy Act and the Oscar winner who was once Nick’s publicist.

And we sold out of all the copies of the anthology we brought on the night!
