    The Best Australian Essays 2014I don t read Australian authors There I said it I claim to be this well read person who feels the books I ve read are responsible for the person I am, and yet aside from binging on Aussie fiction as a kid I hardly go near the writers bred from this big flat, sunny island I was born on And we ve produced some damn good writers who have contributed to my literary education and the development of literature globally So why d I turn a blind eye I have what s called a cultural cringe Far as I know there aren t any creams pills for it, but I m working on getting rid of it A cultural cringe is when you treat look at your nation in the same way you d view your dad, after a few too many at the family BBQ, lashing out and getting into a fight with the in laws You turn away and hide your face because you feel that deep, special kind of shame only your family can conjure up As a young adult I started to feel as if Australia were this uncultured bunch of bogans who couldn t care less about what the...

    This was actually a much compelling read than I expected I picked it up at a library sale a year or so ago and it finally came up on the list as the next book Almost all the essays were highly readable and many were compelling for one reason or another In retrospect, I could have skipped the literary criticism ones but then there was one brief essay that wasn t so much about the poet but rather how we react to a favourite writer that made me think about several things.Others were universal ie the realisation that parents are ageing and mortal , dated but interesting was Tony Abbott ever a supporter of Freedom TM , sadly current aboriginal identities and rights, treatment and circumstances of asylum seekers and a few sharply relevant dealing with chronic terminal disease diagnoses at a young ag...

    beautiful essays First I thought they will cover political issues but realised at the first story that they are in fact short stories, some political, other social or else The range of authors is well managed and you will always find something you react to.

    A great source of non fiction writing from some of the best Australian authors and writers I loved this anthology as inspiration for my own writing.

    I ve read a couple of American editions of this kind of collection and I have to say that in comparison with those, this is pretty disappointing I enjoyed the personal essays that make up the first 1 3 as well as a couple of the later ones on politics but the whole section of literary reviews was very boring A lot of the essays are about very current events and don t say much besides the obv...
