AbstractHistoryArchive Description

' "I stood there examining my body beneath the stream of water and decided, I don't want my body anymore. I was terrified of it, I didn't know what had been in it, if it had been contaminated, who had touched it. I wanted to take off my body like a jacket and leave it at the hospital with everything else. On that morning, all that I was told was that I had been found behind a dumpster, potentially penetrated by a stranger, and that I should get retested for HIV because results don't always show up immediately. But for now, I should go home and get back to my normal life. Imagine stepping back into the world with only that information."' (Publication abstract)

    'At The Lifted Brow we often find ourselves thinking about intention: what did we intend to do, what do we intend to do, what should we intend to do, and why. What we can promise is that we always intend to intend, no matter what. And we can tell you that we know that the right intentions are a good start, but are never enough on their own. Which is why we intend to continually evolve, too.' (Introduction)

    'The Best of The Lifted Brow: Volume Two celebrates five more years of the most idiosyncratic literary journal from Australia. The anthology includes essays on queer life, Aboriginal history, and the adult industry, as well as fiction that rewrites the Australian literary canon and poetry from some of the world’s best.

    'Volume Two  features distinguished names from Australia and the world, such as Fiona Wright, Eileen Myles, Paola Balla, Peter Polites, Margo Lanagan, Upulie Divisekera, Darren Hanlon, Ryan O’Neill, and Margaret Atwood.

    'It also features the winner of the   inaugural Prize for Experimental Nonfiction, several acclaimed longform essays, plus writing from Brow Books authors Briohny Doyle (The Island Will Sink, 2016) and Shaun Prescott (The Town, 2017).

    'This book is a perfect entry-point into the most interesting elements of Australia’s current literary culture, Volume Twois diverse, exciting, and isn’t afraid to ask the hard questions –  an eclectic and significant collection that captures the sharp sense of humour and experimental sensibility for which the magazine is best known.

    'Volume Two is a follow-up to The Best of The Lifted Brow. Volume One  (2013) which collected the best work from the first five years of The Lifted Brow magazine.'  (Publication summary)
