On literary prizes and Patrick White

My latest ‘Longneck’ column for The Melbourne Review is now online – and in print. It’s about the (new) Stella Prize for Australian women’s writing, the Miles Franklin Literary Award and the great, great Australian novelist Patrick White. I would have happily have written a book on this stuff (if there are any publishers out there listening, I’m available) but 700ish words will suffice for now. You can read it here. And you can read the the full issue of the June The Melbourne Review here (with the right plug-in).
