Australian Literature 101: Kim Scott: That Deadman Dance
Who tells the story of a country? What story does a country’s national literature tell about its people and its identity? Is there such a thing as Australian literature at all?
With major universities offering only the bare minimum in courses on Australian writing and its authors, the Wheeler Centre is filling the breach. Australian Literature 101 is the university education in Australian literature you never had.
This week, Philip Morrissey joins Ramona Koval for a look at That Deadman Dance by Kim Scott.
