Description: The invasion of East Timor, the sinking of the Titanic, Freud's encounter with an "imbecile dwarf", astronomy, pregnancy, Tiananmen Square, a remote Aboriginal community: these historical episodes and narratives inspire the fourteen superb and engaging short stories in The House of Breathing, winner of four major Australian literary prizes.

Concerned with the extremes of human experience, Jones's stories give fictional form to a wide range of philosophical concerns: cultural imperialism, political and sexual repression, the impact of modern technology on culture and consciousness. As one critic observed, "Jones writes with such originality and intelligence that her obvious erudition never burdens her prose: it adds an extra dimension of textual richness and luminosity, both rare and addictive".
