- Gerald Murnane was coined in The Guardian as “one of Australia’s greatest writers” and The New York Times considers him “one of the best English-language writers alive.”
- Gerald Murnane speaks to Tristan Foster at 3:AM Magazine about writing, craftmanship, and his place in Australian literature.
'This extraordinary piece of writing quivers on the same line between inspiration and mania that many of the stories do, and delivers a strain of exhilaration I have only encountered through the work of Gerald Murnane.’
‘Murnane’s writing exhibits what literature should: an insight into a way of seeing that is quite unlike our own.'
Adrian Nathan West
Times Literary Supplement
‘As Murnane remarks, “My writing was not an attempt to produce something called literature but an attempt to discover meaning”, and his insistence on the artifice of written enterprise bears witness to a thoroughness and integrity that far outweigh the minor virtue – or minor vice – of readability.’
Benjamin H, Ogden
The New York Times
‘A voice so clear, so unaffected, that it’s a voice for everyone.’
The New Republic
‘The sentences are laid on like varnish, coat after coat, until the text gleams with a high shine. Immaculate in its unadorned plainness, at certain moments his prose achieves a crystalline beauty.’
