Works about this Work

Words and Silk : Gerald Murnane at the Cinema Stefan Soloman , 2015 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antipodes , December vol. 29 no. 2 2015; (p. 293-320)
'Adrian Martin, one of Australia’s eminent voices in film criticism, once asserted that Philip Tyndall’s Words and Silk was "one of my all-time favourite Australian films." However, this hybrid documentary, focusing on the writer Gerald Murnane, has seen very little attention since its release in 1989, and that in spite of a recent spate of interest in Murnane’s work. As a writer of "true fiction," Murnane has been motivated from the start of his career by a "succession of images," and indeed, many of his novels owe a certain debt to motion pictures. In this essay, I discuss the relation of cinema to Murnane’s writing, considering how Tyndall’s film might serve as a useful means for interpreting Murnane’s oeuvre, and how it might be evaluated as a work of cinematic art in its own right..

How I Went from Hating to Loving and Collecting the Books of Gerald Murnane Frank Carleton , 2010 single work essay
— Appears in: Biblionews and Australian Notes and Queries , March-June no. 365/366 2010; (p. 10-15)
'I have bought two Gerald Murnane first edition books: Tamarisk Row, his first novel, published in Melbourne in 1974 by Heinemann, and Velvet Waters, his sixth book, a collection of short stories published by McPhee Gribble in 1990. The following will tell how I got into Murnane.' (p. 10)
Magical Numbers Ivor Indyk , 2009 single work criticism
— Appears in: Resourceful Reading : The New Empiricism, eResearch and Australian Literary Culture 2009; (p. 142-155)
The essay looks at the profitability of literary books for publishers, taking as examples data from the University of Queensland Press and some other publishers. The empirical research finds as the baseline reality of literary publishing 'its unprofitability, its fundamentally uncommercial nature' (147). Three case studies reveal that factors other than literary criteria tend to contribute to a book's commercial success.
