Amanda Maxwell and Sarah Larnach: Nobody Told Me There’d Be Days Like These

30 Dec

Nobody Told Me There'd Be Days Like These

Nobody Told Me There’d Be Days Like These is the debut short story collection from Sydney-based New Zealander, Amanda Maxwell and features illustrations by Record | Preserve | Share favourite, Sarah Laranach. Maxwell and Larnach are both from New Zealand but met and became friends in Vancouver while living there in the early noughties. They now live on different floors of the same building in Kings Cross, Sydney.

Nobody Told Me There'd Be Days Like These

Published by Australian independent book publisher Serps Press, the fifteen short stories in Nobody Told Me There’d Be Days Like These are coming-of-age tales which explore teen years –  the fuzzy boundaries between youth and adulthood, friendship and romance, independence and loneliness and, of course, the awkward space between happiness and sorrow. Maxwell’s writing style is simple, crisp and clean and is for anyone who is, or remembers what it’s like to be, young. It goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyway), Larnach’s illustrations are H-to-the-oh-T.
