These three pieces are a sample of the kind of writing I have been contributing to the Australian and The Sydney Morning Herald over the course of my professional career. They are generally on literary topics, and they seek to address matters of concern to the wider literary community, and in particular the community of readers, which in this country is a lively and healthy one. The Australian is a national publication with a weekend circulation of 307,390 copies (Audit Bureau of Circulations, date reported 14 August 2009). It is the country's only quality broadsheet national newspaper. The Books and Literary pages of these publications form a vital part of Australia's cultural life; in these pages debates are followed, issues are raised, authors are examined, texts are explored and interrogated in numerous ways that engage the reading community and in an intellectual level that arguably transcends academic boundaries in fresh and accessible ways. In such a context these publications of mine play an important role, mediating and delivering literary matters to a broad-based, informed and curious community.
