September 2013, no. 354

We have a bumper issue for you in September. In Advances the Editor reports on the PM’s Literary Awards ceremony in Brisbane, especially Michelle de Kretser’s electrifying speech. In our lead review Gillard biographer Jacqueline Kent writes about Kerry-Anne Walsh’s heart-on-sleeve account of Gillard’s deposition. It’s great when seasoned critics choose to rhapsodise. Peter Craven does just that in his review of the new Text Classics edition of Kenneth Mackenzie’s 1937 novel The Young Desire It. Also, keep an eye out for information about our events, fellowships, prizes, and performing arts reviews. ABR is so much more than just a magazine!
