AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Geordie Williamson examines changes in Australians' perceptions regarding fiction not set in Australia. Focussing on Nam Le's The Boat, she begins with the reception of Christina Stead's writing and also mentions the work of M. J. Hyland, Christos Tsiolkas and J. M. Coetzee. Williamson concludes: 'There is something exhilarating about the speed with which our literary landscape has altered. Like some tax-free island haven, a globalised, transnational literature seems to have found in Australia a place of balmy breezes and light regulation and decided to make of it a home. For the moment, that is.'
