AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The writerly ‘I’ is notoriously fraught and political in non-fiction writing. What are the implications of writing from a biased and limited perspective (as all of us inevitably do)? How to get around – or work within – the constraints of the personal? These questions are ethical ones but also ones of craft. Many memoirists and essayists have grappled explicitly with them on the page.' (Introduction)

    'The April issue of ABR appears at a time of enormous crisis and seclusion around the world. Never has good journalism or creative writing been more important. In 'Coronavirus and Australian Book Review', the Editor outlines how the magazine is responding to Covid-19. Elsewhere in the issue, Jenny Hocking (Gough Whitlam's biographer) writes about John Kerr and the Palace Letters, and Johanna Leggatt laments the likely closure of AAP, with its ominous consequences for media diversity and investigative journalism. We have reviews of new books by Felicity Plunkett, Cassandra Pybus, Tom Keneally, Lydia Davis, and many more.' (Publication summary)
