NRB Editors Remember Literary Agent and Friend Rose Creswell, Linda Funnell , Jean Bedford , single work obituary
Claire Corbett : Watch Over Me, Sally Nimon , single work essay
'This is a powerful portrayal of what can happen in war and in the skilful hands of Claire Corbett the message is clear: there but for the grace of God …'
Ashley Hay : A Hundred Small Lessons, Jeannette Delamoir , single work essay
'Ashley Hay’s new novel gives us warm, affectionate portraits of people and place in a story that shifts between past and present.'
Random Thoughts: On Recent Biographies of Australian Women, Linda Funnell , single work essay
'I love a good biography. During my career I was fortunate to publish two award-winners: Jill Roe’s Stella Miles Franklin and Nadia Wheatley’s The Life and Myth of Charmian Clift. Each was written by a trained historian, each involved a mountain of research, and each took over 20 years to write. They exemplify some of the difficulties of writing biography in Australia: to produce a work that is authoritative, carefully crafted and thoroughly researched takes a long time, and mostly publishers’ advances are modest and the writing has to be financed by other work.' (Introduction)
Lia Hills : The Crying Place., Michelle McLaren , single work essay

'The Crying Place is a big novel that juggles even bigger ideas.

'For the first time in his life, Saul, a drifter, has remained in the same place for nearly a year. He has a steady job, and he’s renting a tiny Sydney apartment, its door marked with scratches left behind by ‘a dog once forced to live where it didn’t belong’.'

Crime Scene: Sarah Schmidt : See What I Have Done., Justine Hyde , single work essay
'This fictional rendition of a true crime by Sarah Schmidt is full of brilliant and off-kilter imagery that reinforces the unsettling mood of the novel.'
