October 2016, issue no. 385
Highlights of the October issue include Kate Burridge's assessment of the colourful, yet 'selfieless' new Australian National Dictionary and David Rolph on 'the most famous statutory provision in Australia' - section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act. Other highlights include Catherine Noske on two books by Maxine Beneba Clarke, Dennis Altman on a new biography of Jack Mundey, Sue Kossew on J.M. Coetzee's new novel, Critic of the Month James McNamara on Dark Money, and David Smith on David Cay Johnston's three-decade pursuit of 'con artist' Donald Trump, as well as Nicholas Jose on Dorothy Hewett, a new short story from Cate Kennedy, and poems from Jill Jones, Stuart Cooke, and Poet of the Month Sarah Holland-Batt. We also review new fiction from Hannah Kent, Ann Patchett, Jock Serong, Rajith Savanadasa, and Michelle Wright.
