Ali’s last book, a work of fiction titled Transactions, was published in July 2013 and was long-listed for the Frank O’Conner International Short Story Award. It is a cycle of interconnected stories, described by one critic as “beautifully twisted” and by other critics as an “uncompromisingly frank narrative” and “a remarkable work.” 

Ali is a Senior Lecturer in Literary Studies and Creative Writing at Monash University — see his staff profile here.
