Works about this Work

The Ghost and the Host: ‘Hauntologising’ Diasporic Difference in Simone Lazaroo’s Fiction Paul Giffard-Foret , 2013 single work criticism
— Appears in: Westerly , June vol. 58 no. 1 2013; (p. 148-166)

Explores the use of demonology in Asian Australian women’s fiction as a way of approaching Simone Lazaroo’s oeuvre through the prism of what Jacques Derrida described as ‘hauntology’.

The Poetics of Subalternity Michelle Cahill , 2012 single work criticism
— Appears in: Mascara Literary Review , June no. 11 2012;
'This essay attempts to assemble a radical critique of contemporary Australian literature, which in its orientation and its networks of power and interest inaugurates itself as a subject in the guise of nationalism while ignoring the divisions of cultural capital and labour. This is an exclusive and essentially White paradigm that articulates difference in Euro-Imperialist terms, elaborating discourses of difference, counter-narratives, multiculturalism, postcolonialism and non-determination while concealing its agency, its neo-colonisation and domination of Otherness. And by "Other" I am referring generally to those marginalised and disempowered by the narratives of Australian literature, history, law, political economy and adopted ideology (of the West, that is) and I am speaking as an Asian Australian writer unfortunately privy to the gatekeepers of Australian literary culture. I'll have to ask you to indulge me in that my essay is an intentionally polemic commentary, embedded in a space I enter as a writer of colour, hybridity and Asian background rather than as Anglo-academic or cultural theorist. And I make this entreaty because in advancing my argument I am aware of causing dichotomies to arise within the trace of this text.' (Author's introduction)
