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.

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.

Griffith Review 35 from the Author: Julianne Schultz. At times it feels like we are unwilling participants in a never-ending disaster movie, buffeted by natural catastrophe, war, economic collapse, social implosion and private trauma. But behind the shocking headlines, official inquiries and memorial ceremonies there are many stories of renewal and hope, of survivors who pick up the pieces and rebuild their lives and their communities. The brilliant writing in this edition of Griffith REVIEW takes you on a remarkable journey. The authors capture extraordinary battles and random brushes with fate—and live to tell the tale. And though surviving is a personal quest, there is also an opportunity to learn how to be better prepared: to adapt, survive, even thrive after disaster subsides. Surviving features new writing by some of Australia's leading authors, including Matthew Condon, Sophie Cunningham, David Francis, Michael Gawenda, Tom Griffiths, Ashley Hay, Ian Lowe, Kathy Marks, Sally Neighbour and New Zealand author Lloyd Jones.

Griffith Review 39 from the Author: Julianne Schultz. Kathy Marks' essay 'Channelling Mannalargenna', about the survival and sense of self among Tasmania's aboriginal population, won the 2013 Walkley Award for Indigenous Affairs. A ground-breaking and topical edition of Griffith REVIEW that will highlight rapid changes in Tasmania, past and present, by the state's best writers and thinkers. Tasmania, the smallest of Australia's states, has long been on the edge of national conversations about prosperity, equality and identity. In Tasmania: The Tipping Point? Griffith REVIEW serves up strategic slices of Tasmania's past, present and future, prepared by many of the state's best writers. Thinkers and doers from Tasmania and beyond, including members of its diaspora, examine whether the island state has reached a 'tipping point'. Geographic isolation, a distinctive natural environment and small social scale are increasingly seen as blessings, presenting remarkable opportunities. The arrival of David Walsh's block-busting Museum of Old and New Art in Hobart has inspired confidence in championing Tasmania as a cultural, economic, environmental and social test bed - despite some entrenched local resistance. Tasmania: The Tipping Point? challenges how Tasmania is seen by outsiders, and illuminates how Tasmanians see themselves, down home and in the world.

Griffith Review 38 from the Author: Julianne Schultz. The Novella Project revives one of the richest and most rewarding literary forms. Novellas - longer than a short story, shorter than a novel - have come into their own, with the digital publishing revolution providing new opportunities for writers to experiment with longer stories that are intense, detailed, often grounded in the times, and perfectly designed for busy people to read in one sitting. This edition features six stories picked by a panel of judges from more than two hundred entries. Mary-Rose MacColl explores the rippling consequences of a single moment of distraction; Lyndel Caffrey poignantly recreates the bleak Melbourne winter of 1923; and Katerina Cosgrove combines a portrait of strife-torn Greece with a tale of tortured love. Ed Wright tells the tragic story of a spirited teenager torn between love and duty in wartime Japan; Christine Kearney embraces the complexities of the mythic and contemporary reality of life in East Timor; and Jim Hearn cooks up a challenging and gritty tale of a junkie in trouble. The Novella Project marks the beginning of an ongoing project, developed in collaboration with the Copyright Agency Limited's Cultural Fund, which we hope will help foster a new golden age for the novella with an antipodean perspective.

Griffith Review Single Looking Back A Self Portrait from the Author: Lloyd Jones. Internationally acclaimed award-winning author Lloyd Jones looks back at how rugby shaped his childhood, his worldview and his adult sensibilities. From childhood games in the suburbs of Wellington, to a reverence for the mythical members of the All Blacks, rugby provided a vast and complex sense of place. Lloyd is best known for his novel Mister Pip which won the Commonwealth Writers' Prize and was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. He is also known for the Book of Fame which is a fictionalized account of the All Blacks' 1905 trip to England, which rocketed the team to fame. This memoir originally appeared in Griffith REVIEW 33: Such Is Life.

Griffith Review Single Leader Of The Gang from the Author: Glyn Davis. Glyn Davis, professor of political science and vice-chancellor of Melbourne University, argues that there are more similarities between street gangs than business enterprises. He reviews the history of the leadership turbulence that besets both sides of Australian politics through this prism and reaches some worrying conclusions. For years Professor Davis, formerly Queensland's most senior public servant, worked closely with premiers and prime ministers and understands the ruthless and unforgiving nature of a system in which office is held by party room consent - but depends on an unpredictable set of factors, and means that sometimes the party prefers a daredevil, but at other times it is a desperado, puritan, muscles or brain who can do the job. There are no certainties, alliances are tenuous. 'Leader of the gang' provides insights for everyone interested in the fragile bargain that makes and breaks political leaders. 'Glyn Davis discovers that the secrets of how political leaders take and hold power in Australia...can be found not by looking at conventional models of leadership, but at the behaviour of street gangs. Refreshingly original, compelling, provocative and ultimately troubling.' Michael Gordon, National Editor, Age

Griffith Review 33 from the Author: Julianne Schultz. There seems no end to our hunger for the stories of real people facing impossible odds or dealing with the mundanity of life. Yet not every life story finds - or deserves - an audience in addition to Facebook. Such is Life presents a dazzling selection of new memoir, personal essay and biography by some of the best Australian and international writers, with narratives that help make sense of the world and our conflicts about privacy, truth and perspective. Award-winning author Lloyd Jones reveals how childhood rugby and a reverence for the All Blacks shaped his adult sensibilities and success beyond the Wellington suburbs. Carrie Tiffany comes to terms with pain and shame; Shakira Hussein falls between identities and cultures in the wake of 9/11. Debra Adelaide learns the value of an official identity; Meera Atkinson's friendship transcends pubescent pop star fandom; and David Carlin attempts to write the history of Circus Oz. In essays, Frank Moorhouse tests the boundaries of privacy and stigma; Peter Bishop salutes teachers - real and literary - who nurture our creative imagination; A.J. Brown gets behind the writing of his new biography of Michael Kirby; and Matthew Ricketson surveys recent political memoirs. Marion Halligan, Toni Jordan and Anna Dorrington explore the legacy of mothers and children, while John Tranter, Brian Geach and Andrew Sant investigate rites of fatherhood. Raimond Gaita and Kate Holden consider what is honoured or lost when adapting memories to book or film; plus Virginia Lloyd, Rosie Scott, Sheila Fitzpatrick and much more.

Griffith Review 45 from the Author: Julianne Schultz. How does work shape our values, our citizens, cultures and communities? As our work changes, how will it change us? How does the blurring of work and leisure through ‘access anywhere’ technology affect our attitudes to work? How are older Australians going to find consistent and flexible work (as the government wants them to do) when age discrimination is rife? Will flexible work help decrease the gender gap? These are the questions posed in The Way We Work. The way we work has changed profoundly in recent years. Many welcome the flexibility of the new environment. For others, though, it represents a deepening of risk and insecurity. The proletariat is giving way to what has been called the precariat, a new class who lack the stability and certainty of regular work or predictable social welfare. Griffith REVIEW 45:The Way We Work explores the extraordinary structural changes in work caused by technology, globalisation, economic theory, the collapse of the unions and an ageing population.

Griffith Review 55 from the Author: Julianne Schultz. Hope is at the heart of South Australia. More than any other state it has shaped its own destiny with large doses of vision and optimism. It has been less frightened of ‘the vision thing’ and demonstrated willingness to challenge prevailing sentiments, experiment, boldly innovate and take a national lead. As a result, the state has produced a disproportionate number of leaders in business, sciences, arts and public policy. This spirit is needed more than ever. The state faces profound challenges as the industrial model that shaped twentieth century South Australia is replaced by an uncertain future. State of Hope explores the economic, social, environmental and cultural challenges facing South Australia, and the possibilities of renewal that draw on the strength of the past. It celebrates the unselfconscious willingness that hope enables. State of Hope features leading South Australian writers and others with a connection to or deep knowledge of this unique place, with the distinctive Griffith Review mix of essays, reportage, memoir, fiction and poetry. Julianne Schultz AM FAHA is the founding editor of Griffith Review, the award-winning literary and public affairs quarterly journal. Patrick Allington is a lecturer in English and Creative Writing at Flinders University. He is a widely published essayist, critic, and fiction writer. ‘A most interesting miscellany...This collection is permeated by an awareness of South Australia’s economic problems in the wake of the collapse of its manufacturing industry, but also by an optimistic faith in its future.’ ANZ LitLovers
