Strangers at Home: Place, Belonging, and Australian Life Writing

by Jack Bowers


"What Bowers has done is introduce us to the astonishing wealth of autobiographical literature produced in this country. He’s made me want to read all the books I haven’t read, and reread the ones I have. His analysis of these works has more than increased my appreciation — it’s offered me great insight into this complex, multifaceted nation I have made my home... a fascinating survey" — Sara Dowse,

"A very accessible and readable volume, as well as intriguing and original in its approach. Bowers has achieved something here that is unique, and that should appeal to anyone who has given any thought to the character of their life, to the stories through which their life is shaped, to the places with which their life is inextricably entangled. It is a book that should appeal, in other words, to almost anyone and everyone." —Jeff Malpas, Distinguished Professor, University of Tasmania
