    The Sydney Review of Books is Australia’s leading
    space for longform literary criticism. Now celebrating five years online, the SRB
    has published more than five hundred essays by almost two hundred writers. To
    mark this occasion, The Australian Face collects some of the best
    essays published in the SRB on
    Australian fiction, poetry and non-fiction. The essays in this anthology are
    contributions to the ongoing argument about the condition and purpose and
    evolving shape of Australian literature. They reflect the ways in which
    discussions about the state of the literary culture are constantly reaching
    beyond themselves to consider wider cultural and political issues.

    The Sydney Review of Books was established in
    2013 out of frustration at the diminishing public space for Australian
    criticism on literature. There’s even less space for literature in our
    newspapers and broadcast media now. The Sydney Review of Books,
    however, is thriving, as the essays in The Australian Face show.
    Here, you’ll read essays on well-known figures such as Christos Tsiolkas,
    Alexis Wright, Michelle de Kretser and Helen Garner, alongside considerations
    of the work of writers who less frequently receive mainstream attention, such
    as Lesbia Harford and Moya Costello.

    Catriona Menzies-Pike and James Ley.
