1 Upsurge Gillian Appleton , 2019 single work review
— Appears in: Australian Book Review , May no. 411 2019; (p. 23)

'People who were university students at a particular time often like to regard those years as exceptional, a perspective which, embellished by nostalgia, memoirs, and media hype, can take on mythic proportions. A case in point is the concurrence of people and talent that led to a high point in student theatre at the University of Sydney during the late 1950s and early 1960s.'  (Introduction)

1 And the Winner Is ... Confusion Gillian Appleton , 2009 single work criticism

With the many Australian literary awards, Gillian Appleton says that ' [t]he average reader could be forgiven for feeling a little confused - particularly when as sometimes happens, a book wins one major award but fails even to be shortlisted for others ... [and] wonder about the people and the processed deciding the winner.'
