Two deep thinkers and fine writers turn their minds to contemporary Australia. In Lies, Damned Lies: A Personal Exploration of the Impact of Colonisation, Claire G. Coleman gives us insight into the stark reality of the ongoing trauma of Australia’s violent colonisation. Julianne Schultz’s The Idea of Australia: A Search for the Soul of the Nation interrogates what defines us as a country. It tracks the contest between an imaginative and defensive country, and what we must do to become our best selves.
