    y separately published work icon Landscape with Landscape Gerald Murnane , Carlton : Norstrilia Press , 1985 Z427426 1985 selected work short story 'Murnane's innovative fictional techniques in Landscape with Landscape have inspired debates regarding whether the text is a novel or a collection of stories. The cover of the Penguin edition uses the terms "stories" and "fiction," but does not label the text either a novel or a collection of short stories [...] In the last section of the work, 'Landscape with Artist,' Murnane's narrator directly addresses the issue, stating, "I had considered again one of the problems that had kept me from showing my manuscripts to a publisher. I tried to decide whether they were a collection of short stories or whether I could combine them and unify them to make them a single novel ... [I] told myself that ... I would ... devise a new form of prose fiction - neither short story nor novel."' (Nathanael O'Reilly Exploring Suburbia p.217) Carlton : Norstrilia Press , 1985 pg. 123-170
