Reviews

"This fourth volume of Australian Writers matches in format the earlier books in this extensive series. It includes 57 authors whose major works have been published between 1975 and 2000. Each entry consists of a bibliography of the writer's work, a biography emphasizing literary careers, illustrations that include a portrait and the front covers or dust jackets of major books, interviews, published biographies, other references, and the libraries or archives where the author's papers are deposited. For many readers this volume will be an introduction to the wealth of literature published by Australians in recent years." --ARBA, March 2007
