The Paradise Project: Flash Fiction by Merilyn Simonds


What is a garden? A yearning to bring nature close? Or a bid for total control? 

The Paradise Project explores in 17 short-short stories the human response to the planted world. Meet the minor diplomat who populates the earth with his lurid purple-fruited plant; the woman encased in a circling bower; the artist who paints a garden for love; the writer who adds a goldfish to a stranger's sidewalk idyll; the couple who contentedly care for a father's garden until Will comes along. Erotic, exotic, suffused with startling colour and heady scent, grounded in dark shadows and decomposing duff, The Paradise Project ensures you will never look at gardens the same way again. 

Originally published in 2012 in a limited edition by book artist Hugh Barclay of Thee Hellbox Press, hand typeset and printed with endpapers made by paper artist Emily Cook from plants in the author's gardens. Now released as an eBook featuring the original block prints by Erik Mohr.
