Griffith REVIEW's highly anticipated third annual fiction collection explores islands, both geographical and personal.
This assortment of new fiction from the best emerging and established writers from Australia and the region promises a unique summer journey into localities of exclusivity, escape and enchantment. Island mentalities can delineate points of difference, uniting communities or separating individuals.
The lure of islands has inspired and disappointed, from dreamy quests for utopia to the adventurers who reach new and troubling shores. This edition will surprise and delight, and will include the announcement of the 2011 winners of the Griffith REVIEW Emerging Writers' Prize.
Previous Griffith REVIEW fiction issues have featured Peter Temple, Nikki Gemmell, Kate Grenville, Rodney Hall, Toni Jordan, Luke Davies, Kate Holden, Nick Earls, Eva Hornung and many other leading Australian authors.
