Eugen Bacon’s delightful new collection, THE ROAD TO WOOP WOOP AND OTHER STORIES, was review in the latest issue of Aurealis Magazine by Madison Stoff. We loved it and hope you get a copy of the magazine and check out the full review!

The book is like an ouroboros (an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail) structurally, a journey without an end, densely packed with layered subtext that begs re-reading afterwards.

The Road to Woop Woop & Other Stories

The Road to Woop Woop & Other Stories

Eugen Bacon’s work is deemed cheeky with a fierce intelligence in text that’s resplendent, delicious, dark and evocative. NPR called her novel Claiming T-Mo ‘a confounding mysterious tour de force’. The Road to Woop Woop and Other Stories imbues the same lushness in a writerly language that is Bacon’s own. This peculiar hybrid of the untraditional, the extraordinary within, without and along the borders of normalcy will hypnotise and absorb the reader with tales that refuse to be labelled. The stories in this collection are dirges that cross genres in astounding ways. Over 20 provocative tales, with seven original to this collection, by an award-winning African Australian author.
