    y separately published work icon The Well in the Shadow : A Writer's Journey through Australian Literature Chester Eagle , Yarraville : Transit Lounge , 2010 Z1672791 2010 selected work criticism 'Award-winning Australian author Chester Eagle journeys through Australian literature offering engaging essays on the works of writers including Miles Franklin, Patrick White, George Johnston, Beverley Farmer, Helen Garner and Alexis Wright. As Eagle says in his introduction: "The essays are not introductory. I consider them rather as a sharing of one writer's reflections with the thoughts of readers who are looking for something new to add to their thinking. What the fellow-writer has to offer is the insight that comes from having also been at the heart of the risky business of creating and imagining. Writers can see what other writers are up to because they face the same problems and use the same tricks." These entertaining essays are linked by the essential notion of what it means to be a writer in Australia, and as such offer up valuable insights into our literature and country.'
