Welcome to Bellevue
Grattan Street Press is thrilled to announce the release of Welcome to Bellevue, a compelling fantasy action and adventure story by Seth Robinson. The e-book is available on Amazon and Kobo. Welcome to Bellevue will also be available in paperback soon.
The hero of Welcome to Bellevue awakes on a ferry with no memory of how he came to be there. The boat is bound for Bellevue, a place he has never heard of – a place that proves very difficult to leave.
Seth Robinson is an American-Australian author based in Melbourne. Seth retains his American twang and love of pine trees, something that contributed to the setting of Welcome to Bellevue, his debut novel.
Uncontained: Digital Disconnection and the Experience of Time
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.
