Winner of the 2014 Viva La Novella Prize



‘This extraordinary book is so beautiful, its heartbeat loud and clear as a bell. Filled with a voice that is both innocent and wise, it is a literary embodiment of the Heart Sutra.’ – Alice Pung




When the dead begin speaking to sixteen-year-old Kim Nguyen, her peaceful childhood is over. Suddenly everyone wants to exploit her new talent – her family, the Vietnamese government and even the spirits themselves.




The Other Shore is a delicate meditation on the nature of ghosts, belief and how the future is shaped by the past.




Following on from 2013’s successful winner, Midnight Blue and Endlessly Tall by Jane Jervis-Read, Seizure’s Viva La Novella competition is back! This initiative is unique in its support of writers and editors alike. Four talented editors each selected a manuscript to work on from of a pool of over 150 entries. The winning authors were announced at the Emerging Writer’s Festival in Melbourne in June 2014.
