Summary
An electric collection of fiction from an author shortlisted for Australia's Prime Minister Prize, Transactions presents a provocative and panoramic view of the contemporary world. Spanning themes such as immigration and globalization, war and poverty, human trafficking and global warming, sexual abuse and exploitation, and love and survival, the book highlights the complexities and traumas of the modern world. The story cycles offered in the compendium are both shocking and humorous—often concurrently—and feature a varied cast of characters such as a spoiled Emirati rich girl, an Iranian asylum seeker in Amsterdam, a Liberian refugee seeking aid from a charity, a Ukrainian prostitute, a Danish sex trafficker, and a Chinese gamer. These are individuals who live on the edge of what is considered civilized society, often caught between East and West and in the web of global politics
