AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'As a poet, librettist, short story writer and novelist, David Malouf has produced more than twenty volumes since his Bicycle and Other Poems was published in 1970. Until recently, 12 Edmondstone Street (1984) was his only volume of non- fiction. But throughout his writing career, he has also been an active reviewer, essayist and public speaker. His words can be found in the files of magazines and newspapers, and in his introductions to works of literature, performances and art exhibitions. His public addresses live on in the memories of those fortunate enough to have heard him speak.' (Introduction)

    'This issue's cover image, ‘Parallel Universe: Stones Corner’, comes from the Museum of Brisbane exhibition, Navigating Norman Creek. Trish FitzSimons created a series of short documentaries that reveal the natural and social ecosystems sustained by Norman Creek, even as the city encroaches ever closer and more densely. The overhanging branches of her arresting image form a barrier that protects the stream, its wildlife and the local people who use the creek for recreation and dreaming. It also suggests that this place has survived because there is something impenetrable about it. This image sets up a theme about habitat and dwelling that loosely links the essays in this issue.' (Editorial introduction)
