Verandah’s 25th anniversary edition marries literature and art, celebrating longevity and inspired excellence. In this publication you will find yourself faced with an ill-advised encounter with a call-girl, a dalliance with the personification of Freudian concepts and view a family who lives in an oven. Traverse the poetics of relationships-gone-sour, only to believe you’re a child’s cubbyhouse slowly dissolving in the rain. Don’t forget to stockpile. Shotguns, bullets, canned peaches, butter knives for the zombie apocalypse.
