Mis-Recognised Knowledges : National Identity and the Unreliable Narrator in Jack Hibberd's A Stretch of the Imagination and Josephine Wilson's The Geography of Haunted Places, Glen McGillivray , 2008 single work criticism
'In this article I analyse how both works [A Stretch of the Imagination and The Geography of Haunted Places], despite their different historical contexts, enact a critique of Australian identity against a background of significant political change within the country. Although seemingly quite different, these works adopt similar dramaturgical strategies and I argue that their significance lies in their genealogical connection.' (69)
