the everrumble is a poetic imagining of intense focus and sweeping ideas. Zettie's story is fluid and in motion, transcending geographies and time. She stops talking, at age seven, and starts to listen - to the worlds she finds in language and books, and to the people and places she encounters as she moves across continents. Her silence connects her to people, to nature and to the elemental world. Magical and beyond boundaries, this collection focuses on small fragments, taking Zettie, and the reader, inevitably to the place where human history began.

Here, with Michelle Elvy’s the other side of better, are wise reflections cast through refracted light. Here is the scent of the sea, the rift and grit of childhood. Here is an absorbing cinematic poetry in the telling – breathtakingly honest and elegant stories (personal, yet universal) about how we live, how we struggle and, most enduringly, how we thrive. A wondrous collection! ~ Robert Scotellaro Well-turned stories, rich with wit and detail, that explore the spaces between people and places, from the ‘concrete weight’ of history to the secrets of creeks, islands and oceans. ~ Paula Morris A collection that surprises not just because it can, but because it understands the surprises of the world. ~ Erik Kennedy Michelle Elvy uses the economy of the form to keep her powder dry. Often, the full implication – sometimes enormity – of the story is only realised after the reading is over. ~ James Norcliffe Michelle Elvy’s new collection is released in June in conjunction with the 2021 National Flash Fiction Day events, with a launch party in Dunedin followed by readings in Auckland and Christchurch.
