The Best of The Lifted Brow collects the best fiction, essays, and poetry published in the pages of Australia's most irreverent literary magazine, once described by Margaret Atwood as having the "cheek of Dame Edna, and the weirdness of wombats."

The Best of The Lifted Brow: Volume Two celebrates five more years of the most electrifying and idiosyncratic literary journal in Australia. The anthology features essays on queer life, Aboriginal history, and the adult industry, fiction that rewrites the Australian literary canon, and poetry from some of the world’s best writers. The Best of The Lifted Brow is an eclectic and significant collection that captures the sharp sense of humour and experimental sensibility for which the magazine is best known.

A perfect entry-point into the most interesting elements of Australia’s current literary culture, The Best of The Lifted Brow: Volume Two is diverse, exciting, and isn’t afraid to ask the hard questions.
