Australian Voices PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Australian Voices free pdf Contemporary Australian fiction is attracting a world audience, particularly in the United States, where a growing readership eagerly awaits new works. In Australian Voices, Ray Willbanks goes beyond the books to their authors, using sixteen interviews to reveal the state of fiction writing in Australia-what nags from the past, what engages the imagination for the future. Willbanks engages the writers in lively discussions of their own work, as well as topics of collective interest such as the past, including convict times- the nature of the land- the treatment of Aborigines- national identity and national flaws- Australian-British antipathy- sexuality and feminism- drama and film- writing, publishing, and criticism in Australia- and the continuous and pervasive influence of the United States on Australia. The interviews in Australian Voices are gossipy, often funny, and always informative, as Willbanks builds a structured conversation that reveals biography, personality, and significant insight into the works of each writer. They will be important for both scholars and the reading public.
