I know several of you have seen it but if you haven’t I have a very personal piece in the current edition of Griffith REVIEW. The edition concentrates on the ability of cultural projects to solve otherwise intractable problems and in this case i decided to go back to some of my own.
“Marcus Westbury’s ‘Resurrection Myths’ is a … visceral description of his fractured upbringing and his subsequent recovery as he inadvertently finds himself in a ‘world of ideas’ is delivered with such panache the images he conjure linger long afterwards.”
I’ll take it.
The full essay — which is probably the most personal thing i’ve published — is online (potentially for a limited time) on the Griffith REVIEW site and available, as they say, “wherever good books are sold.”
If you’re interested in hearing me talk “Cultural Solutions”, i’ll be joining Julianne Schultz, Scott Rankin and Robyn Archer to at the Wheeler Centre in Melbourne on monday night (12 May). Tickets are free but bookings essential.
