A couple of updates

Just a quick note to say I’ve added links to two pieces of mine published last year in The Australian Literary Review to the site. The first, ‘Stealing Memory’s Thunder’, is a review of James Frey’s novel, Bright Shiny Morning and a discussion of the growing phenomenon of fake memoir, the second, ‘Perfect Worlds in Miniature’, is a review of recent short story collections by Annie Proulx, Michael Chabon, Robert Drewe and the frighteningly talented Anne Enright.
