Griffith REVIEW 37: Small World will be released on 25 July.
Affluence has made Australians more mobile than ever. The notion of travel as a recreational pursuit of the wealthy is long past.
Small World broadens the mind with postcards and intelligence from everywhere at a time when the growth of international air travel has shrunk the definition of proximity and the internet has enabled the globalised media industry to bring distant events and places tantalisingly close.
Featuring major pieces by Murray Bail, Tony Wheeler, Melissa Lucashenko, Mark Dapin, Gayle Bryant, Inez Baranay and many more, this edition opens a new window on how we live now and searches for meaning in global engagement.
Book release: 25 July 2012
RRP $27.95 / NZ $35.00
