Uncontained: Digital Disconnection and the Experience of Time

Uncontained by Robert Hassan Book Cover

Grattan Street Press is excited to announce the release of our new monograph Uncontained: Digital Disconnection and the Experience of Time by professor Robert Hassan. It is now available at Readings and other independent bookstores, and in our shop.

In order to break free from the ‘digital prison of constant distraction’, Hassan booked a passage on a container ship and spent five weeks travelling from Melbourne to Singapore – disconnected and essentially alone. In this space of isolation and reflection, he was able to reconnect with lost memories and interrogate the temporality of time.

Something to be tiptoed around

Grattan Street Press is delighted to announce the launch of our new series, Grattan Street Shorts. We’ve kicked off with Emma Marie Jones’s wonderful book, Something to Be Tiptoed Around, which is now available in our shop.

In this stunning experimental memoir critique, Emma Marie Jones explores the tangled nature of grief, loss, memory and femininity. Drawing on elements of Greek mythology and literary theory in ways that are surprising and imaginative, Something To Be Tiptoed Around is both deeply affecting and utterly human.
