The Kitchen Tales is a collection of short stories written by local writer Sally Mansen about the fictional lives of a passing generation of Australian women. The ageing characters offer their cautionary tales to contemporary women around themes of domesticity and power. Funny, sweet, and sad, while creeping into myth as the common language of our humanity, the stories face honestly the lingering question around a woman’s identity and destiny. The Kitchen Tales is strikingly designed as an early-mid 20th Century chapbook with dust cover. Printed on sustainable papers and produced in Melbourne.

Sally’s writing has been awarded by the National Trust of Victoria, by Short Story Prizes of local and regional writing festivals, and by the Port Phillip Citizens for Reconciliation. It has also appeared in Australian Womankind magazine. The Colours of Mrs A. Daloney, one of the stories in this collection, was awarded the National Alan Marshall Short Story Award Longlist in 2010
