Saying the Unsayable, Kate Grenville , 2006 single work criticism
Grenville puts the case that: 'The voice of debate might stimulate the grey cells, and the dry voice of "facts" might lull us into being comfortable, even relaxed. But it takes the voice of fiction to get the feet walking in a new direction.' She illuminates her discussion with references to Thea Astley's A Kindness Cup and to official reports of the punitive raid on the Aboriginal people of Botany Bay in December 1790.

Aboriginal Writers on the Significance of Space, Sense of Place and Connection to Country, Anita Heiss , 2006 single work criticism
Anita Heiss canvasses a range of books by Aboriginal writers from across Australia. Each book gives an account of the writer's relationship to a particular place, land and space. Heiss emphasises that, at the beginning of the twenty-first century, 'the largest concentration of the Aboriginal population lives in greater Sydney.' This does not mean that Aboriginal people are unaware of their 'clan or language groups', but it does mean that connections are made through familial, political, social and other cultural associations to particular places. It also means that many urban Aborigines 'choose to write about the desecration of significant spaces in cities...'
