September 2016, no. 384
The highlight of the September issue is distinguished historian Alan Atkinson's searching and timely RAFT Fellowship essay on the Australian national conscience. Other highlights include Glyn Davis on Britain's Europe from birth to Brexit, Beejay Silcox's fly-on-the-wall account of a Donald Trump Rally, Bernadette Brennan on the works of Kim Scott, Simon Caterson on Brett Whiteley, Joy Damousi on the Armenian Genocide, and a poem from New Zealand's poet Laureate Bill Manhire. We review fiction by authors including Steven Amsterdam, Nick Earls, Tara June Winch, Howard Jacobson, and Anna Spargo-Ryan. Michael Shmith interviews Brett Dean for Green Room, and author Fiona Wright is our Open Page guest.
