Louis Nowra's piece in the March issue of the Australian Literary Review, which I applauded, has attracted "many letters". "A selection" of them will be published in the May issue, says the editor.
We have become acquainted with this kind of encouragement of debate by the excellent Quarterly Essay books that are published by Melbourne's Black Inc. It allows issues of importance to be aired in greater depth. It will be interesting to see if the editors of the ALR will give Nowra a chance to answer these letters with a contribution of his own.
