The New Paper Families is a lively and provocative collection of 36 short-short stories suitable for secondary students of English. These lesson-sized stories from Australian and international authors cover a range of themes, styles and genres, and introduce students to writing techniques and the skills of critical literacy. This new edition of the well-established anthology includes more than a dozen new short stories, revised activities throughout, and a bold and engaging design and illustrations. Focusing on personal themes, it features work from both well-known authors, such as Janet Frame, Kate Grenville and Woody Allen, and authors just starting their literary careers.
