The Glove Box

The Glove Box and other stories is a collection of short stories. This new release will be published in February, 2014 in paperback and ebook formats. 150 pp. Selected stories from the collection will also be available in mp3 and CD-rom formats. In this collection, Vivienne Plumb is interested in women who are the road. In the title story, 'Glove Box', an otherwise house-bound and straight-laced mother regularly takes off in the family's old Jag for hours on end. Other characters hitchhike, crisscrossing the Australian continent, accepting lifts in trucks, cars and kombi vans with trees painted on them. They are running away from dysfunctional families; they are seeking adventure or just looking for work. There are women in transit and in transition - stepping out of the traditional role ascribed to them and onto an open road. Plumb's writing is wonderfully evocative - filled with luscious descriptions.
