The Oxford Literary History of Australia - Bruce Bennett

This was quite enjoyable. Although of a somewhat academic bent, it avoids in most cases pure academic arch-wank scholarese meaningless sentences to produce a text that is much more interesting and readable than you might expect. So a very fine job from that point of view, if it is meant to be accessible to a more average sort of reader.

4 out of 5
