'Following is as excerpt from the proposal I made to this year's Association for the Study of Australian Literature conference" 

'Years ago when I made a similar proposal for an ASAL conference, a colleague discouraged me by saying It sounds interesting but its not the convention for a writer to talk about himself or his own writings. 
'I immediately sensed what was hidden behind the remark: A writer is better dead than talk about himself, about his own writings and about his own writings in one language, compared with his own writings in another.'' (Introduction)
