The texts in this collection hunt down the lost and the dead, tracing their paths from small apartments in the suburbs of Sydney to Malpensa Airport in Milan, bearing witness to what they get up to when our backs are turned.

By turns strange, beautiful and beguiling, Letter to the Author of the Letter to the Father by Tristan Foster is an outstanding collection of short fictions from one of Australia's most exciting new voices.
