The Elusive Agatha, Maureen Eppen , single work criticism
'The mystery surrounding Agatha Christie’s 1926 disappearance provided the inspiration for On the Blue Train, the second novel of US-based Australian author KRISTEL THORNELL. She tells MAUREEN EPPEN how her research led her to parts of England where the celebrated mystery author lived – and to the North Yorkshire hotel where she spent her ‘lost’ days.'

Behind the Book, Luke Williams , single work essay
'Immersing yourself in research is essential for a conscientious journalist. But Australian journalist Luke Williams took things further than he expected when his investigation into crystallised methamphetamine – also known as ice – resulted in him becoming addicted to the drug himself and descending into psychosis. The Ice Age: a journey into crystal-meth addiction combines memoir with reportage as Luke examines whether ice usage is reaching epidemic proportions – or if it’s just another moral panic about the underclass. Here Luke outlines what life was like when he was in the grip of psychosis.'
(p. 44-45)
