Life Task is a short story anthologised in Getting Up (Leaf Books). It was a finalist in the Academi / Rhys Davies Short-story Competition.
“Life-Task by Angela Graham is one of those quiet, nuanced narratives that refract light into the depths of human tragedy. The story – oblique, harrowing, beautiful – bears witness to the personal cost of war…Graham haunts the memories of her readers with the paradoxical climax of her tale. In her hands the short story is a brief epic of suspenseful waiting and reversal, told in the minor key.”
