The Show of the Year 2018: Laura Jean McKay
Each year – for our Show of the Year – we bring together a range of writers, performers, artists and comedians to help you reflect, review and revel in the year that was. And 2018 was no exception.
Speaking for the month of June, writer Laura Jean McKay remembers Eurydice Dixon and Qi Yu: 'These tragic events start it all up again. But it never ends.'
Laura Jean McKay writes about humans and other animals. She is the author of Holiday in Cambodia (Black Inc. 2013), a story collection that explores the electric zone where local and foreign lives meet. Holiday in Cambodia has been shortlisted for three national book awards in Australia and her work has appeared in The Best Australian Stories, Award Winning Australian Writing and The North American Review.
