Meet Craig Cliff

Craig Cliff's first collection of short stories, A Man Melting, was named one of the best books of 2010 by The Listener and Sunday Star Times and won Best First Book for the South East Asia and Pacific region in the 2011 Commonwealth Writers Prize Best First Book. He lives in Wellington and writes a fortnightly column for the Dominion Post about juggling life as an up-and-coming fiction writer and a full-time public servant (and whatever else takes his fancy).

A few short stories are:
