A heartwarming collection of short stories brimming with colour, warmth and humour, from one of Australia's best-loved authors

A group of friends on an unconventional diet learn some important life lessons, a fashion-challenged grandmother weaves some magic in a dusty charity shop, a grieving young mother takes a healing journey, and a shy woman from a family of high-achievers learns to follow her dreams.

From one Australia's most loved authors comes All Together Now, a collection of Monica McInerney's short fiction gathered between two covers for the first time.  Including her popular novella, Odd One Out, this is a book to inspire and delight fans of all ages.

Family relationships, sibling rivalry, love lost and love found – these stories touch on the popular themes of Monica McInerney's hugely successful novels, and are brimming with her trademark colour, warmth and humour.
'McInerney is Australia's answer to Maeve Binchy, a modern-day Jane Austen.' Sun Herald

'It's an almost sinful pleasure to delve into anything written by Monica McInerney, whose delightful prose brings her rich characters to sparkling life.' Irish American Post, USA

'Her books are for handbags and airports, traffic jams, railway stations and bus stops.  They make us forget the irritating details of the day.' Sydney Morning Herald
