Griffith Review

Love this time of year when you can cuddle up with a book and enjoy the words (as well as tactile doona cover). Read this issue of the Griffith Review and not just because I have a prose piece in it, but because it has many great writers such as Gideon Haigh, John Harms, Tracey Holmes, Fleta Page, William McInnes and many more. Look at the Griffith Review here.
