Shannon Burns Profiles Australian Writer Gerald Murnane

In August 2015, JMCCCP early career researcher Dr Shannon Burns

wrote an extended profile of the enigmatically brilliant and under-recognized Australian writer Gerald Murnane for the Australian Book Review. The essay, which was supported by an ABR fellowship, reviewed Murnane’s challenging and rather idiosyncratic oeuvre in the context of his personal biography. A full version of the essay, “The scientist of his own experience: A Profile of Gerald Murnane” can be found on the Australian Book Review’s website.

Dr Burns has continued to explore his interest in Murnane’s work with a review of his latest book, Something for the Pain, out in the October edition of the Australian Book Review.
