Peter Craven argues that the 'imagination cannot be tethered by nationalism, even though the fruits of the literary imagination ... may have a peculiar poignancy to us because we live in this place. It doesn't make them better, it simply makes them ours. The primary function of the Miles Franklin Award - apart from putting money in the hands of writers who allow us to imagine who we are - is to make us brood on these matters'.
