AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Your Christmas lunch or dinner need not be constrained by those fussy and inflexible eaters within the family. A perfectly splendid meal can still be created with a broader range of ingredients than might normally be used for a festive occasion, along with some careful planning and preparation in the weeks before. Knowing well in advance of the dietary requirements of your guests will assist considerably, so you are urged to approach them with a checklist before finalising your menu. Modern families typically comprise vegetarians, vegans, non-pork eaters, seafood allergists and coeliacs, meaning your pantry should be comprehensive enough to provide anything from gluten free fruit cake to tasty alter-natives to roast turkey.

    'The theme of this issue, Mixed Messages, relates in the main to a thread running through the essays, all of which engage with texts that challenge the limits of genre. These challenges include the status and influence of what might be termed a secondary genre deployed by writers whose renown is based on another form: Brigitta Olubas considers the short fiction of novelist Shirley Hazzard; and Cheryl Taylor introduces the poetry of novelist Thea Astley. Kate Livett delves into the mixed media, specifically music and photography, at the core of Helen Garner’s The Children’s Bach, and Peter Kirkpatrick examines the fusion of Gothic and Romance forms in Chloe Hooper’s The Engagement, and David Brooks thinks through the miscenegy of the human and the non-human in relation to the famous scene of Derrida standing naked before his cat. Another strand in the issue is of comedy and errors and includes fiction by Debra Adelaide, John Kinsella, Mark Macrossan, Sara Bucholz, Nasrin Mahoutchi, Niki Tulk and Scott McCulloch. The poetry spans its usual wide range from the lyric to graphic experimentation and the reviews introduce some of the exciting new work published across creative and critical forms.'
