Dream Stuff Background

Dream Stuff is an anthology of 9 short stories written by David Malouf. It was first published in Australia by Chatto and Windus in 2000. An edition for the United States was also released by Vintage books in 2001.

In the anthology, Malouf tackles the themes of fantasy, loss, and reality. A motif that is often repeated throughout the 9 stories is that of the dream, in which anything can happen, anywhere, and at anytime.

Dream Stuff has received largely positive reviews, with the New York Times describing "the endless liveliness of the dust, the clear conviction that the last resort is both ancient history and just a beginning" in Malouf's stories as "exhilarating".
