Geordie Williamson: The Burning Library

Listen to Geordie Williamson: The Burning Library

Geordie Williamson, one of our leading literary critics, approaches books and writing with the ardour of an enthusiast – though he’s also alarmed at the way classic Australian literature is falling out of fashion and being forgotten. Geordie’s new book The Burning Library is his hopeful remedy, reintroducing readers to past masters like Dymphna Cusack and David Ireland, and celebrating marginal geniuses like Gerald Murnane. He discusses his motivations for reviving our awareness of our modern masters with Sarah L'Estrange of Radio National’s Books and Arts Daily.
