Foreword by Shankari Chandran

All lives have two things in common: they begin and they end.

But within each life, there are thousands of little openings and little closings, all happening at once. The day you make the decision to move abroad; the moment a relationship comes to a close; the choice that changes the course of life as you know it. Through many twists and turns, from one passion, one person, one experience to the next, we live not just once, not even twice, but as many times as we may wish. A collection of diverse and unique voices, the stories in Living Twice will take you on a journey through intriguing prologues and fulfilling epilogues. This anthology cradles the expressions of life itself: the rollercoaster that is growing up; experiences of loving and of being loved; and the hope we hold for new beginnings.

Shankari Chandran is an Australian Tamil lawyer and the author of the novels Safe Haven (2024), Chai Time at Cinnamon Gardens (2022, Miles Franklin Literary Award 2023), Song of the Sun God (2022), The Barrier (2017) and Unfinished Business (2024, Audible). Her work explores dispossession, erasure and the value of community. She is the deputy chair of Writing NSW and lives in Sydney with her husband and four children.

The University of Sydney Anthology is created, curated and produced by publishing students.
