An update to my post about Vladislavic's The Loss Library

An update to my earlier post about Ivan Vladislavic's new book,
The Loss Library and Other Unfinished Stories

Also see his "Labour of Moles" http://bit.ly/AkVPSW

Ron Slate's written a good article on The Loss Library, at:

"The Loss Library is a beautifully made book. Illustrations by Sunandini Bannerjee are tipped into the opening pages of chapters – their distortions, suggestions and incompletions complement the author’s intent and style. There is a sly slightness to the book, an airiness that inspires wonder about the elusive narratives all around us."
The Loss Library is published by the University of Chicago Press and by Umuzi, Randomstruik in South Africa

Does Australia Need an ICAC for Poetry?  David Musgrave's article in Southerly is not new, but it's worth reading if you missed it....
