Join Patrick Holland as he launches So Much Smoke, a collection of short stories by Felix Calvino.
The short stories in So Much Smoke owe much to Félix Calvino’s own experiences as a migrant who moved from the Galicia region of Spain to Australia, a country and culture radically different from the peasant village he left behind. The majority of the stories chronicle the hardships and small joys of village life, while the Australian stories tell of the migrant experience in which all that is known is forfeited in the search for material security. 
Félix Calvino is a PhD Candidate in Creative Writing at the University of Queensland. He is the author of the short story collection, A Hatful of Cherries (2007), and the novella Alfonso (2013) released by Australian Scholarly Publishing.
