AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Tim Winton spent his childhood in suburbia and on Australia’s west coast as described in his autobiography Land’s Edge (1993). He wrote his way to become the darling of Australian readers who enjoy his rich prose that evokes the south-western landscape of his native land. He can be regarded as a writer who has a close affinity with the people and especially the land that he holds in high regard in his stories. Winton’s coastal narratives invariably vividly depict rural communities functioning in harmony with the beach culture.' (Introduction)

    'When preparing an issue of Transnational Literature, the last thing I do before writing the editor’s note is to compile the contributors’ page. For some that might seem like a mere formality. I’m not sure how many people will click through and view the list of bio notes of our authors – forty-odd academics, students, poets, memoirists and novelists from just about everywhere you can think of: Saudi Arabia, Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, Japan, India, Hong Kong, Greece, Bangladesh, South Africa, USA, UK, Italy, Malaysia and, yes, Australia.' (Gillian Dooley, Letter from the Editor)
