Griffith Review 34: The Annual Fiction Edition

Julianne Schultz

Griffith Review’s highly anticipated third annual fiction collection explores islands, both geographical and personal.

This assortment of new fiction from the best emerging and established writers from Australia and the region promises a unique summer journey into localities of exclusivity, escape and enchantment. Island mentalities can delineate points of difference, uniting communities or separating individuals.

The lure of islands has inspired and disappointed, from dreamy quests for utopia to the adventurers who reach new and troubling shores. This edition will surprise and delight, and will include the announcement of the 2011 winners of the Griffith Review Emerging Writers’ Prize.

Praise for Julianne Schultz
andGriffith Review 34

‘Griffith Review has tried to remain a publication not only for writers and literati, but for readers. And for that, it’s worth reading.’

‘William Trevor said the short story perfected “the art of the glimpse”, while V. S. Pritchett, towards the end of his long life said the novel “tends to tell us everything, whereas the short story tell us only one thing and that intensely”. Both comments hold true in this collection….Indeed, there is not a flat note in this collection. It shows us Australian contemporary fiction is in fine fettle.’

‘Sporting new yarns from established talents and new writers…[an] impressive effort.’

‘Powerful examples of contemporary Australian short fiction.’
