Welcome to issue number 350 of ABR! Leading the way is our Calibre Prize winner for 2013 – Martin Thomas’s magnificent account of the violation and restitution of Aboriginal bones in west Arnhem Land. Gillian Terzis and Alison Broinowski review new books by Al Gore and Oliver Stone, respectively. Patrick Allington praises a novella by Marion May Campbell, who is our guest on Open Page. There is news of two new ABR writers’ fellowships, each worth $5000. We also have poems by Laurie Duggan, Clive James, and Jennifer Maiden.
