AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The first half of this paper gives a short orientation to the novel then prodeeds to analyse the way in which Hospital enables her readers to become more aware of how the identities of individual subjects and "global" Australians are constructed. I argue that she encourages her readers to critique the process of identity acquisition by moving the (tired though nevertheless effective) dichotomy of inclusion/exclusion to examine the suffering that it constitutes' (121-122).
