AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The critical work offers a discussion of publishing practice and the closed fellowship of the book trade (how decisions to publish are made; the history of publishing in Australia), and the impact of foreign publishers on the development of a particular Australian voice. It also looks at the censorship of political and homosexual writing in the first seventy years of the twentieth century and explores some issues in narrative theory, particularly with regard to the development of identifiable homosexual narratives. A significant section is devoted to the Australian G. M. Glaskin, especially his seminal homosexual narrative No End to the Way, and a concluding section examines the works Joseph Hansen, the American writer of detective novels.
