David Malouf by Don Randall


David Malouf by Don Randall

Don Randall's comprehensive study situates Malouf within the field of contemporary international and postcolonial writing, but without losing sight of the author's affiliation with Australian contexts. The book presents an original reading of Malouf, finding the unity of his work in the continuity of his ethical concerns: for Malouf, human lives find their value in transformations, specifically in instances of self-overcoming that encounters with difference or otherness provoke. However, the book is fully aware of, and informed by, the quite ample body of criticism on Malouf, and thus provides readers with a broad-based understanding of how Malouf's works have been received and assessed. It is an effective companion volume for studies in postcolonial or Australian literature, for any study project in which Malouf figures prominently. -- .

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.
