Wordlines: Contemporary Australian Writing Reviews

    Hilary McPhee describes the works she chose for this anthology as international, political and engaged. I'm really not sure about engaged, but most of them are engaging. A number have exotic locations which I guess is the international bit. Sometimes it enriches the story and sometimes not. I liked Drusilla Modjeska's 'The Bliss of Arrival'. I'm getting a good feel for contemporary Australian writing and respect McPhee's judgement.Gerald Murmane's Angel Song was so boring I didn't finish, so maybe I missed something. Cate Kennedy's Tender was my favourite. It spoke to me of my own generation and the character of women I have known.
