Joel and Cat Set the Story Straight (2007) by Nick Earls


We stayed at the Chelsea and I got my hair cut there by a hairdresser who had done Dee Dee Ramone’s that morning. Nothing unusual in that. She told me she’d cut his hair for years. I never discovered if it was true. I wanted it to be true. Dee Dee Ramone. Dee Dee’s hair was no fixed thing. Johnny...

Green (2012)

He’s been at Royal Brisbane, talking to Charlie O’Hare about his long-case assessment. ‘The arsehole. He could have passed me. He said he’d never liked my attitude, so he looked more closely at the write-up when I handed it in. The patient had only just been discharged, so it was easy for him to ...

The Thompson Gunner (2012)

There are twelve of us, nine men and three women, and I’m sitting next to Terri, a location scout who has been working with Elliott somewhere outside the city for the past two days.

New Boy (2015)

Mom brings out the big coil of boerewors and Max tells me it looks like a poo.     Hansie laughs. ‘Ha! Poo! Massive poo!’ ‘I bet it doesn’t taste like one,’ Max’s father says, and Hansie laughs even more.     ‘Most of us aren’t in a position to make the com...

The Fix (2012)

Derek Frick wanted to be a rockstar. Derek won that one. Luck and sales in the millions came Butterfish’s way, and Derek lived the rock dream to the max, with Curtis on keyboards, just holding on.     It was a relief, really, when the third album tanked and Butterfish imploded...

Making Laws for Clouds (2012)

This is the summer my mother isn’t always on the bus, and I used to dream about that.     No more of my mother burping and farting and creaking like an old house with all that gas in her. My mother cracking those lame boozy jokes no one gets and smelling something like old fis...

The True Story of Butterfish (2009)

‘That’s going to be really good. What are you going to do with it?’ I was in the studio and Lost in Time, the song sent overnight by Gunnar and Øivind, was playing. I could see their point about getting Annaliese to do backing vocals, but I wasn’t sure now that it was ever going to happen. And th...

Monica Bloom (2012)

She stayed in my head after that first meeting, more than made sense.     Years later I would think there had been something brittle about her from the start. Or fragile. They’re almost the same. But that would take hindsight, and more. And I can’t honestly say that she was ei...
