The Cambria Australian Literature Series

Cambria Australian Literature Series

The Cambria Australian Literature Series focuses on critical studies of writing by Australians, with a particular emphasis on contemporary Australian fiction. The series aims to provide some of the critical study necessary to support Australian writing and to give sustained consideration of a writer’s full career or a particular aspect of Australian literature. In particular, the series places the writing not only within a context of Australian culture but also in the context of international developments in literature.

Cambria Press’s first critical monographs on Australian writing were Water from the Moon: Illusion and Reality in the Works of Australian novelist Christopher Koch by Jean-Francois Vernay, David Foster: the Satirist of Australia by Susan Lever, Chinese in Australian Fiction, 1888–1988 by Ouyang Yu, and Postcolonial Issues in Australian Literature by Nathanael O'Reilly. In 2008 Cambria Press established the series under the general editorship of Dr Susan Lever. Books in the series to date are:

We are interested in proposals for book-length considerations of individual Australian writers with established reputations. We will also consider proposals with wider and more general scope, that provide an interesting and accessible reading of aspects of Australian writing. Queries should be directed to editor(AT)

The general editor of the series is Professor Susan Lever, who has been awarded with life membership of ASAL (Association for the Study of Australian Literature) for her “outstanding contribution to ASAL and to the scholarship of Australian literature more broadly.”
