    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 c [...]

    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.
