Franklin Award, the Stella Prize, and numerous state literary awards. They are
taught in high schools and universities across the country.

This collection of essays offers reflections on Jones’ fiction by leading Australian
and international literary critics. For readers who loved Sixty Lights, Five Bells,
Sorry and Jones’ other novels, and for students of Jones’ work, this book will be
an illuminating companion. With chapters on her use of language, her thematic
preoccupations, and her place in local and global literary culture, it is a timely
guide to the work of an exceptional Australian writer.
