AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Jose, as fellow novelist, considers Carey's position in the world of Australian letters, recalling the cultural atmosphere of the early 1980s, when Bliss was first published. From Jose's critical appraisal Carey emerges not only as a "literary Houdini" but also as a writer whose fiction "broke new ground" at the time, signifying a "break from the shackling domination of literary London"' (Introduction to Fabulating Beauty xxxi).
