AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This book, with its brilliantly-designed cover, had an immediate appeal for me, for I also left my native land for the other side of the world, although my move from Australia to Greece in 1980 was a very different one from that made by Charlotte and Henry, the novel’s protagonists, from Cambridge to Perth in the 1960s. Bishop says that her writing was inspired by the migration experiences of her grandparents, and indeed the twentieth century was one of mass migration, as the twenty-first is also proving to be.'

    This issue of AWBR, contains nine long-form reviews of recent books by Australian women writers. The focus of Carole Ferrier's editorial essay is on the potential destructive effects of new technologies - such as drones - on animals and the environment. The cover image for this issue - The Tree-of-Life Sends its Energy Underground - is an evocative painting by visual artist Kathryn Brimblecombe-Fox. She provides a detailed explanation of her inspiration of this piece from her 'Dronescapes' series.
