This third collection of short stories by Alice Tawhai explores the complex mix of beauty and heartache, resilience and joy of people living in seemingly bleak situations. The perceptions of people and their lives are fresh and poignant, seeing the humanity and quiet hope alongside the darkness.
The vivid imagery and intensely evocative writing make each story and those in them hauntingly memorable.

"Compelling and sensitively nuanced, 'Dark Jelly' is edgy, meaty and substantial, and very dark indeed."
"Alice Tawhai's third short story collection is one to pack in the beach bag. Her perceptions of subcultures, assemblage of characters, downright quirkiness and deft style make her a significant contemporary voice in Māori writing."
