'The best books are those you revisit over the years ... and with each visit you learn new things about yourself and about the story.' - Mykaela Saunders on Carpentaria by Alexis Wright All writers begin as readers.

This is an ode, a love letter, to the magic of reading. To the spark that's set off when the reader thinks ... I can do this too. Here, twenty-six writers take us through these moments of revelation through the dog-eared pages of their favourite Australian books. Among them, poet Ellen van Neerven finds kin on the page with Miles Franklin-winner Tara June Winch. AS Patric finds a dark mirror for our times in David Malouf's retelling of an episode from the Iliad. Ashley Hay pens letters of appreciation and friendship to Charlotte Wood.

These and many more writers come together to draw knowledge from the distinctive personal and sensory stories of this country: its thefts and losses, and its imagined futures. Australian fiction shows us what it is possible to say and, perhaps, what still needs to be said.

Reading Like an Australian Writer is a delightful, inspirational and heartfelt collection of essays that will enrich your reading of Australian stories and guide you in your own writing.
