This month's writer is the multitalented, always-entertaining Anson Cameron.
Anson has written six critically acclaimed novels: Silences Long Gone, Tin Toys, Confessin’ the Blues, Lies I Told About a Girl, Stealing Picasso, and The Last Pulse, as well as two brilliant collections of short stories, Nice Shootin’ Cowboy and Pepsi Bears and Other Stories.
Last year, he published a memoir, Boyhoodlum, the hilarious confession of an ingeniously devious boy, who, in the 1960s and '70s, waged guerrilla war on his hometown of Shepparton.
Anson now lives in Melbourne and writes a regular column for The Age.
“His writing manages to immerse you in a sharp potion of nostalgia, laughter, and eventually, melancholy, mixed entirely free of mawkishness.” – Tony Wright – The Sydney Morning Herald (on Boyhoodlum).
“A comic masterpiece that uses the erratic flow of the Murray-Darling river system and state tensions over water rights, it’s one of the funniest, blackly exuberant explorations of Australian national identity in memory.” – Ed Wright – The Australian (on The Last Pulse)
“…one of the most interesting writers of his generation … has an imaginative largesse and sentence-by-sentence articulation that soars above the pack” – Peter Craven, The Australian
