Abstract/Summary Eleven of Queensland's best writers: John Birmingham, Mary-Rose MacColl, Andrew McGahan, Gerard Lee, Steven Herrick, Jay Verney, Melissa Lucashenko, Martin Duwell, Nigel Krauth, Mark Svendsen and Paul Galloway get off the banana lounge to tackle 100 years of Queensland writing in this collection of humorous and thoughtful essays. Queensland writing – always a wellspring for the national literature – has been dominated by powerful and curious figures: Xavier Herbert, Steele Rudd, David Malouf, Thea Astley, Judith Wright, Oodgeroo and more recently Andrew McGahan, Hugh Lunn, Nick Earls, Helen Darville and Venero Armanno. From John Birmingham's Lost City of Vegas to Mark Svendsen's The Real Stud, this book reveals a weird and wonderful Queensland in eleven new essays and over 40 extracts from a century of writing.
