"Grammars of Creation” : An Interview with Brian Castro : 24 November 2008 Marilyne Brun (interviewer), 2011 single work interview
— Appears in: Journal of the European Association for Studies on Australia , vol. 2 no. 1 2011;
'This interview with contemporary Australian writer Brian Castro addresses a number of themes and concepts that are central to his critical work and fiction. In the interview, Castro discusses his oeuvre as a whole, providing insights into the starting point for his first eight novels. He comments on the concepts of transgression, hybridity, polyphonia, cosmopolitanism and play, underlining the central significance of grammar, ethics and aesthetics in his work. The interview also includes reflections on the development of Asian Australian studies and the importance of translating novels. In the final sections of the interview, Castro discusses the relation between his critical work and his novels and reflects on the common conflation of the novelist and the theorist in much literary criticism.'

— Appears in: Australian Literary Studies , May vol. 20 no. 3 2002; (p. 231-240)
The article discusses the critical reception of the work of Brian Castro, especially the responses to his use of critical theory in his novels. In analysing theory and authority in Castro's novel Double-Wolf, Barker discovers a shift in his approach to theory and argues that it is Double-Wolf which, unlike the earlier novels, gives Freud and Freudian theory a leading role and foregrounds theory in an entirely different way from his other novels. She discusses these and other issues with Brian Castro in an interview published in the same issue of Australian Literary Studies.
