Synopsis In Beyond the Persimmon Tree the stories and poems read like a colourful travelogue of adventure and experience. From travelling around the Coromandel with a crossword to savouring the incense of spices and colourful sensations of Iran, we dine beneath an orange Australian outback sunset then discover a mountain in Peru that's not all it's cracked up to be. We meet immigrants arriving to the shores of their new land; go on a hair-raising cyclo ride through the clamouring streets of Vietnam and are fascinated by jive talking on a Greyhound bus. We join a black kitten with attitude on the back of a motor cycle and celebrate a winning team's success on a remote island in Greece. We walk through the warm-scented rose gardens of Parnell and are immediately transported to the vineyards of Alsace. We read of love lost and found, and rediscovered; of murder and mystery and intrigue; of humorous anecdotes and stories with twists and stings in their tales; of runaway children, scarecrows and ghoooooooooosts. We hope you enjoy your journey through these pages, to return again and again to savour the warmth and the camaraderie of our fellow travellers. Beyond the Persimmon Tree has 100 stories and poems, from 38 talented past and present IWW members, mostly from winning and placed entries in the Workshop's annual competitions from the last few years. It is named after a moving short story by up-and-coming writer Gay Johnson, and also includes Alice Hooton's 'America', the winner of the inaugural Kathleen Grattan Prize for a Sequence of Poems, in 2009.
