AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In the wake of the December 2004 South Asian tsunami Susuan Wyndham searched for '"big-name" Australian writers who had written books set in Indonesia, Thailand or Sri Lanka'. Wyndham discovered few such authors and contended: 'Our writers, uninterested or uncomprehending, have skipped over the region to more familiar imaginative ground. Readers turning to books for an understanding of the devestated countries will have to look elsewhere.'
