‘The authors all have links to Western Australia, but their ‘moments of realisation’ are refreshingly global, particularly in the later stories. There are coming-of-age stories, off-kilter stories, sad ones, stories of internal and external landscapes, and a few that are wonderfully strange…’ — Angela Meyer, Australian Book Review

‘This is one of the best books I’ve read of any genre and that’s coming from someone who normally avoids short story collections.’ — Pelican

‘quirky and memorable …’ — IshopPerth

‘What is most striking about The Kid on the Karaoke Stage is its stories’ range of style and genre, a range which seems to suggest that Fremantle Press has generously – and quite unusually – created a collection that includes both the voices of writers who have mastered their craft and those who are still very much finding their voice.’ — Text Journal
