Confession: Amy Witting’s I For Isobel (1989) has been on my shelf for ages and is the first work of hers I’ve read. The novel records a decade in the life of Isobel Callaghan, from unhappy nine to unfulfilled 19. Isobel is a loner, someone who struggles…

We take a look at the country through the eyes of literature, and how books shine a light on some of the darker aspects of Australian life.

Wow! What a timely read. The structure of That Devil’s Madness by Dominique Wilson is almost a double helix, seeming parallel narratives of France and Algeria from the late 19th century onwards, and Australia and Algeria in the 1960s. It follows the fates…
