The Literary Review Features Australian and Scottish Writers“Alternative Spaces: Contemporary Australian Writing,” the fall 2001 issue of The Literary Review (TLR), featured the work of 56 poets, fiction writers and essayists. Representing a variety of styles and subjects, many explore the mysteries of the unexplored center of their continent. Guest editor John Kinsella, a well-known poet of place, refers to his inner Australia as “enriching emptiness,” “incredibly inviting,” yet resisting “the sense of belonging that Western human habitation brings to it.” This issue’s writers included Les Murray, Janette Turner Hospital, McKenzie Wark, Coral Hull, Randolph Stow and Dorothy Porter.
TLR’s winter 2002 issue will be devoted to writing by current Scottish poets and fiction writers, many of whom have won major literary prizes. They include Alasdair Gray, Douglas Dunn, Kathleen Jamie, James Kelman, A.L. Kennedy, Alice Thompson and Aonghas MacNaecail. The guest editor is Thomas Richardson, a widely published scholar of Scottish literature.
