‘Longneck’ for July: Jeffrey Smart, Peter Carey

My latest ‘Longneck’ column in The Melbourne Review is out, in print and online. It’s a homage to Jeffrey Smart, the Australian artist who hailed from South Australia and who died recently, and to writer Peter Carey, who before he turned his hand to novels wrote wonderful short stories. Smart’s great painting ‘Cahill Expressway’ is on the cover of Carey’s first short story collection, The Fat Man in History. You can read the column here.
