On Foreign Soil, An Elegant Young Man + Captives

Foreign Soil, An Elegant Young Man, CaptivesMy (somewhat lengthy) review of Foreign Soil by Maxine Beneba Clarke, An Elegant Young Man by Luke Carman and Captives by Angela Meyer has been published by (the good folk over at) ENTROPY.

Thought it worthwhile to evaluate the work of some young Australian writers; by weighing the works against each other, I hope the trends and quality of contemporary Australian literature will become clear for the benefit of an international reading audience (which was basically my pitch).

Big thanks to Janice for being a) enthusiastic, b) prompt, c) interested in literature, d) interested in Australian literature.
