Passion, complexity and craft enrich this collection of Australia's best essays. Each offers the satisfaction of finely wrought prose while engaging the mind with a precise examination of thought and feeling. With the sponsorship of North Broken Hill Peko Limited, Cassandra Pybus organised a competition to encourage the writing of the personal essays. Chosen from more than three hundred submissions, these enticing contributions speak of love and loss, of belonging and alienation, of politics and foibles. They are highly intelligent and informed, each with a distinct subjective voice.
