READ | Scorcher, a short story collection by Tim Ross
"The soft crash of waves that blissfully block out all other noise, the smell of two-stroke and lawn clippings, the first sip of cold beer, the laboured whir of the ceiling fan, the sound of a bag of ice hitting the pavement, that feeling of salt on skin and even the smell of prawns on bin night."
This series of short stories by comedian Tim Ross are juxtaposed with archival images from the National Gallery of Australia. The perfect beach read.
