Following on from his remarkable memoir, Colour-Coated Identity, Bala Mudaly's new collection For All Seasons takes the reader into stories of global confusion and chaos, community care, and neighbourly intimacy. The wise and elegant writing crosses multiple forms: essay, short story, creative non-fiction, dialogue and poetry to analyse and provide historical enlightenment on crumbling societies and major events. For All Seasons embraces wholeheartedly and beautifully the cherished, surprising moments of localism within Melbourne suburbia.
