An invaluable academic resource, this investigation tracks the trends of contemporary Australian fiction with clear, approachable language and well-known works to illustrate points. A complete study of the major genres of Australian fiction that have flourished since 1989, this reference covers the popular—including crime fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and romance novels—as well as the literary.  Novels used and referenced in this wide-ranging survey include Murray Bail's Eucalyptus, Kate Grenville's Secret River, and Richard Flanagan's Gould's Book of Fish. Outside of studying literary themes, the effects of globalization on Australian fiction is also explored.
