Cracking The Spine Ten short Australian stories and how they were written
edited by Julie Chevalier and Bronwyn Mehan
‘Cracking the spine is not just a deftly curated overview of the contemporary Australian short story, including pieces by ten of the best practitioners at work today. The auto-critical essays that accompany each work gesture even more widely. Literature, life, landscape, history: the whole gamut of Antipodean experience may be gleaned from its pages. An ideal resource for those interested in Ozlit, Cracking the Spine is also a pure pleasure to read.’ GEORDIE WILLIAMSON
