The result of a unique collaboration between Sydney’s Macquarie University and International PEN Sydney Centre, and funded by the Australia Council for the Arts and the Australian Research Council, The Literature of Australia gathers the most distinctive and most significant of the nation’s writing. The anthology covers 200 years of literature in all genres, from the 1700s to the present. With 500 entries from 315 different authors, it includes writing by Aboriginal authors from the early colonial period to the present, up to work from contemporary authors of international renown, including Kate Grenville, Peter Carey, David Malouf, Les Murray, and Shirley Hazzard. With biographical details about the authors of the works selected, an introductory essay, major essays setting the works in their historical context, and suggestions for further reading, The Literature of Australia offers readers of all kinds a window into the myriad ways of being Australian.

Thomas Keneally was born in Sydney, Australia on October 7, 1935. Although he initially studied for the Catholic priesthood, he abandoned that idea in 1960, turning to teaching and clerical work before writing and publishing his first novel, The Place at Whitton, in 1964. Since that time he has been a full-time writer, aside from the occasional stint as a lecturer or writer-in-residence. He won the Booker Prize in 1982 for Schindler's Ark, which Stephen Spielberg adapted into the film Schindler's List. He won the Miles Franklin Award twice with Bring Larks and Heroes and Three Cheers for the Paraclete. His other fiction books include The Chant of Jimmy Blacksmith, Gossip from the Forest, Confederates, The People's Train, Bettany's Book, An Angel in Australia, The Widow and Her Hero, and The Daughters of Mars. His nonfiction works include Searching for Schindler, Three Famines, The Commonwealth of Thieves, The Great Shame, and American Scoundrel. In 1983, he was awarded the order of Australia for his services to Australian Literature.
