Sometimes, we all need to get away...
Griffith Review 74: Escape Routes plots the course of our daydreams, our transformations and our jailbreaks. It takes us across borders and through open and opening minds to places once out of reach. As restrictions lift and confines ease, it lights out for new territories, heading over the horizon to access other worlds.
Where are we now, and where do we want to be tomorrow? And who do we want to be when we get there? As another testing year comes to an end, this edition celebrates what might come next.
From mermaids and space matriarchs to fresh starts and flights of fancy, Escape Routes explores what it means to break out and break free.
'A literary degustation... The richness of these stories is amplified by the resonance between them.' - Ed Wright, The Weekend Australian '(Griffith) Review doesn't shirk from the nuanced and doesn't seek refuge in simplistic notions or slogans. It remains Australia's primary literary review.' - Professor Ken Smith, Dean and CEO ANZSOG 'I've loved what Griffith Review has put together...they're very human pieces, not hot takes. That's what GR has done so well...found a way past the veneer of things to their messy, bloody tendernesses.' - Beejay Silcox, writer
