    'A collection of personal essays and writing from David Malouf to celebrate his 80th birthday.

    'Topography, geography, history. Multiculturalism, referendums, the constitution and national occasions. Parental and grandparental romances, the sensual and bountiful beauty of Brisbane, the mysterious offerings of Queenslander houses, and leaving home. The idea of a nation and the heart of its people. Being Australian and Australia's relationship to the world. Putting ourselves on the map.

    'All these subjects, and more, are explored from the generous, questioning and original perspective of David Malouf.

    'At the heart of these pieces is the idea of home, where and what it is. What they illustrate is the formation of a man, an Australian and one of the best writers this country has produced.' (Publisher's blurb)

    North Sydney : Random House , 2014
    pg. 17-33
    Note: Campagnatico 1984 – address to Australian Literature Conference, Milan, November 1984

'At the State Library of Queensland on Friday 6 June 2014, David Malouf gave an address as a part of his SW Brooks visiting lectureship at the University of Queensland. The event was also part of Queensland Week and was one of a series of events honouring Malouf ’s contribution to Australia’s literary culture. Malouf opened his inspiring talk by reflecting on how recent public events associated with his 80th birthday had given him cause to think about the complex factors at play in the creation of what has become his ‘body of work’. The metaphor of the body in this phrase struck him as significant because of the sort of writer he is.' (Author's introduction)
