A Wilderness of Mirrors: Perspectives on 'the Spying Game' in Australian Literature, Bruce Bennett , single work criticism
'The principal focus of this paper is on four novels by Australians published from the 1990s which engage significantly with 'the spying game': Ric Throssells' In a Wilderness of Mirrors (1992), Frank Moorhouse's Grand Days (1993), Christopher Koch's Highways to a War (1996) and Janette Turner Hosptial's Due Preparations for the Plague (2003). Each of these novels throws light ... on the profession of espionage and its impact on individuals. A picture emerges of mobile, trans-national individiuals engaged in clandestine activity which tests their intelligence, commitment and conscience and brings into question the causes they support.'

Tim Winton's Narrative of Belonging : Revisiting Australian Identity through Europe in The Riders, Sarah Zapata , single work criticism
'The purpose of this paper is to explore the way in which Tim Winton's novel, The Riders, enhances a certain construction of Australian identity by establishing a set of contrasts between Australia and the European continent.'
