  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - The fame
    • Abstract: Rosa, Paul Dalla
      On Grindr I told people I was breaking into the business, but that I was also waiting for the right time. I was a triple-threat - a dancer, singer, actor - and then some. I had it, and it was going to make me famous. I just didn't know exactly when or how.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - Stomach
    • Abstract: McPhee-Browne, Laura
      CLARA came to school sometimes, and then left altogether when we were around 15, not saying why or where she was going. The teachers seemed to know that she wasn't coming back before we realised, and her name was never mentioned again. I remember her, and I think of her often, even now, because she was different from anyone else I had ever met. Clara. The name my parents were planning to give me, until I was born and they didn't think it suited my face or the cut of my body. Clara, who smiled when I told her that we might have been namesakes, as if it was unimportant what we were called; that it mattered more what we did and who we were.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - The subject of this profile is eating an avocado salad
           with a vinaigrette dressing
    • Abstract: Williams, Evan
      'I'll have the avocado salad,' she says to the waiter with the understated grace that is a trademark of her Miles Franklin Award-winning prose. A passerby wouldn't guess it, but this woman, who chose the avocado salad after seriously contemplating the mushroom risotto, has just released her seventh critically acclaimed novel. And this time, just like her decision not to add the poached chicken for an additional $4.50, it comes with its share of controversy. Her latest tome, which tackles the difficult topic of government censorship, has been banned in six countries. Naturally, I decide to address the elephant in the room straightaway.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - The 'e' word
    • Abstract: Cheng, Melanie
      When my daughter was two-and-a-half, I took her to her first movie. She was princess-obsessed at the time and I had bought tickets to 'The Little Mermaid'. I knew this was ambitious - toddlers are not known for their capacity to sit still for 90 minutes. I had anticipated a short period of awe, quickly superseded by an ants-in-the-pants restlessness. What I had not expected was to hear her wailing by the end of the first song. But a few minutes after Ariel began lamenting her life beneath the sea, my daughter was crying in sympathy for the would-be princess's plight. That such a young child could feel empathy under these conditions was a revelation. It made me wonder about the physiology of empathy. At what age does empathy develop' What parts of the brain are responsible for it' Why are some people more empathetic than others'

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - National accounts: Any percentage of a heart is still
           a heart
    • Abstract: Sakr, Omar
      I sat on the bed, staring at the phone like it had fangs about to dig into my skin. My cousin's name was lit up like a flag. Dread pulsed in my chest. Here came the conversation I'd been avoiding for more than a decade. He now knew I liked sucking dick. I flicked my thumb over his name, tender as a blade, and watched it slide open.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - The 2017 paradox prize address
    • Abstract: Koh, Julie
      Mark Twain once declared that the sole function of a writer is to tell the truth. And yet many of the world's noblest storytellers - the consciences of our nations - have sadly gone unrecognised in their own lifetimes. With this in mind, we have gathered here today to announce the winner of the inaugural Paradox Prize - an award recognising the best unrecognised book of the previous year. It is a pleasure to be here at the State Library of New South Wales on this fine December evening. Many thanks to 'Meanjin', which has generously sponsored this ceremony.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - Heroes, monuments and history
    • Abstract: Daley, Paul
      A brisk westerly whips up salty whitecaps as the ferry rises and plunges, churns and slices, through a lazy emerald swell, upriver towards Parramatta. It's midday on a Monday. Two international tourists in sensible hats with day-packs and selfie-sticks have been agitated since I responded that, 'No, sorry, you're going the wrong way' for the harbour bridge and opera house. Otherwise I've got the front of the ferry to myself as we cruise under that less famous monument to modernity, Gladesville bridge, the world's longest single-span concrete arch when it opened in 1964.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - Comfortable and relaxed with conservative populism
    • Abstract: Bushnell, Andrew
      The last time identity played such an outsized role in Australian politics, then opposition leader John Howard famously stated his ambition for a country in which people should feel 'comfortable and relaxed' about the past, present and future. Howard's phrase has been remembered because, for detractors and supporters, it captures something deep and resonant in the conservative idea of government. It is an idea worth revisiting now, more than 20 years later, as our politics again breaks down over claims of institutional and historic unfairness, and a conservative response that is, depending on how you look at it, either wilful complacency and disregard or an entirely understandable desire to be left in peace.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - The course of true love ...
    • Abstract: Altman, Dennis
      The course of true love never did run smooth: especially, it seems, when that love comes wrapped in rainbow colours. Over the past decade 23 bills dealing with marriage equality, or the recognition of overseas same-sex marriages, have been introduced into the Australian Parliament. Legislation came after several years of brawling within the federal Coalition, an expensive and lengthy opinion survey, and attempts to roll back existing anti-discrimination protections through a series of amendments, which failed to pass in either House.

    • Abstract: Stokes, Patrick
      Not long ago my wife stood as an independent candidate for our local council. Of all the policies she put forward, there was only one she ever got angry emails about: her support for changing the name of a local reserve, Batman Park.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - Australia in three books
    • Abstract: Wright, Fiona
      I've been thinking about Beverley Farmer's beautiful, aching book The Seal Woman again recently because I spent some time last year on the surf coast of Victoria, alone in a house on a hill above a beach, red-rocked and windy and wild the same kind of landscape that Dagmar, the book's protagonist, inhabits.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - On regret
    • Abstract: Sant, Andrew
      'Regrets I've had a few / But then again too few to mention', the famous song declares. It is enduringly popular: the singer did it his way. This hymn to individualism I heard broadcast the other day to us shoppers, one familiar song following another, in a place of conformity and predictability, a large supermarket, where occasionally a distracted customer, oblivious to others, will sing along or hum. I didn't - I'm reasonably sure - in that somnambulistic state generated by supermarkets, as shoppers drift down one aisle after another, sing snatches of 'My Way' but I did, masked no doubt by an expressionless face, wonder about regret.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - The elephant in the film
    • Abstract: Slattery, Luke
      Five years before King Kong mounted the Empire State clutching 'golden woman' Fay Wray in his car-sized mitt, director Merian C. Cooper rehearsed his abiding theme of savagery versus civilisation in a half-forgotten masterpiece of silent cinema. The 1927 film, co-directed with cameraman Ernest B. Schoedsack, is titled Chang: A Drama of the Wilderness. Every bit as edgy as King Kong, with considerably more charm, it's a documentary-style fable about things that go wrong when we invade the wild. The beast at the heart of the tale - more menace than monster - is an elephant, for which the Thai name is chang.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - The book has left me
    • Abstract: McGuinness, Phillipa
      This book will change your life is a phrase to make the eyes roll, especially if you're a book publisher. It is conceivable that a book's wisdom and insight might make you fitter or smarter, a better lover, cook or parent. It might make you more empathetic and spiritual, calmer and neater to boot. It might transform your social interactions as your friends start twitching as you drone on about a book's revelations. Residents of the Land of Literature will argue that the pleasure of serious reading - a noble end in itself - is life-changing enough.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - 'The road-makers eat meat three times a day'
    • Abstract: Moore, Grace
      In 1871 and 1872 the novelist and travel writer Anthony Trollope visited Australia. He recorded his observations of the colony in a sequence of letters, and wrote every day for the work that would become the two-volume travelogue 'Australia' and 'New Zealand' (1873), which he followed up during his second visit with a series of letters to the 'Liverpool Mercury'. This body of Australian work, to the modern reader, offers fascinating and at times devastating insights into the settler community's impact on antipodean ecology. In particular, Trollope noted the effects of importing European plants and animals, sometimes as an advocate for acclimatisation and at others as an opponent.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - Seeing landscape
    • Abstract: Mills, Jennifer
      My mother Margaret is an artist, although she wouldn't say as much without adding some qualification. Let's say she is a landscape painter. When she turned 70 I invited her to spend two weeks as artist in residence at a place in Bilpin, west of Sydney. If this seems generous, you should know that I also invited myself; I wanted to write about it. The gifts of writers, of daughters, come with qualifications too.

      I Matthew is getting agitated. There are eight of us sitting around a large, rectangular table in the Melbourne Social Equity Institute's meeting room in Carlton, with four others joining in by video from the Northern Territory and New South Wales. It is the second advisory board meeting for our interdisciplinary research project on unfitness to plead laws.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - The Nauru diaries
    • Abstract: Martin, Nick
      It doesn't take long to break a man. You can do it in a second, in one punch, one judgment handed down, one small gesture. I've seen it happen: a sudden crumpling of the features, a devastating blow. I've remembered those occasions, viewed them as significant; to watch someone once full of life die, to be replaced by a shattered husk, is humbling.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - A darkness, a shadow
    • Abstract: Kadmos, Helena; Robertson, Rachel
      I woke with the knowledge that something had shifted. There was a presence inside me, solid at the heart centre that quietly but surely told me I was in a new world. Death was coming into my life, and it had its own schedule.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - Only so much
    • Abstract: Gunaydin, Eda
      The shoulder bumps from strangers that make me shove back during the day go down easier at night. The power dynamic shifts when you hurry against the CBD's foot traffic as a group, newly animated with the ability to break up other clusters of bodies with your increased speed and size. On the corner of Sydney's George and Bathurst I glance up, diverted by some Big Four firm's logo beaming down - its sedate, civilised, civilising weight. The building's few lit office windows cut and blaze against the ones that have gone dark. I imagine being one of those floating Friday bodies shifting on an eighth floor, fiddling with my stationery, sipping from my mug of free pod coffee, looking out the window after dusk and realising that I should climb into my car-smelling car, return to my flatsmelling flat and kiss my cat-smelling cat. Then Ahmet falls onto his side.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - My Jewish atheist journey
    • Abstract: Loewenstein, Antony
      I don't remember the first time I noticed my family's racism. It was probably as a teenager during a Friday night, Sabbath meal in Melbourne. An event in the Middle East would have occurred in the previous weeks, a suicide bombing in Jerusalem or a terror attack against Israelis, and one of my cousins would predictably erupt into a diatribe against the Palestinians and their leader Yasser Arafat. This was the late 1980s and early 1990s, before the internet, so knowledge about a country on the other side of the world came from only a few sources.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - Singing my mother home
    • Abstract: Pryor, Melanie
      On the smallest finger joint of my right hand there is a scar, a tiny, fleshy thing shaped like a heart. I was five, perhaps six. Mum and I were laughing, wrestling, and the sapphire on her engagement ring cut me. The scar it left is something that makes me think of home. It reminds me of the house in which I was born; bottlebrush fence out the front, peagreen roof, black and white cat. My father covered the shed in the garden with white paint, and then we painted a mural on the wall. My grandmother was horrified, but she didn't know the magic that lies in marking your own home.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - A different time
    • Abstract: Burns, Shannon
      When I left home, at age 15, I had nowhere to stay, so a school friend's mother offered to let me live with her and her children for a while. At first I slept on the floor in my friend's room; later I was given a small foldout foam sofa and a space in the living room. I did my best to keep out of the house when I wasn't at school or work, but I knew that my presence was inconvenient.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - Intramural
    • Abstract: Moar, Agatha
      Within those 94-year-old walls of Wesley College at the University of Sydney, 200 students gathered to commence the semester in the waning days of summer 2011. We jostled in from Brisbane, Narrandera, Orange, the Northern Beaches and Melbourne, bringing with us our daddy issues and eating disorders, our addictions and attention deficits. My peers slung questions such as 'what was your ATAR'' and 'what school did you go to'' along the dining table. We freshers were assigned to the table closest to the double doors, further from the stage and the 'high table'.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - The final boys
    • Abstract: Polites, Peter
      My mum loves to do the bolt. For her it's a game until it turns too real. It starts as a playful hop and a jog past some houses. She exhales with a smile then and her eyes expand so much that her brow lines fold. And then she is gone. And then she is bolting down a footpath with her house keys in between her knuckles like jagged bronze knives.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - The song remains the same
    • Abstract: Ford, Andrew; Heino, Anni
      The first the world saw and heard of the Manchester group Herman's Hermits was Peter Noone singing 'I'm into Something Good' through a shy, toothy grin. The band itself, now a stalwart of the RSL club circuit, is little more than a footnote to 1960s British pop, a novelty act among more serious bands such as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, the Animals and the Kinks. But in September 1964, 'I'm into Something Good' dislodged the Kinks' 'You Really Got Me' from the top of the UK singles charts, and Herman's Hermits were big. In Britain, at least, it was their first and last number one.

  • Volume 77 Issue 1 - Pushing back
    • Abstract: Kinsella, John
      Make sure you lock the back door when you come in from the shed, his mother had said. She always said it, because he came in ten minutes precisely after her ten minute pre-dinner call, to wash up and be ready to eat. He liked eating, but he liked working in the shed even more. He had things to do, things to invent, things to achieve. He liked being alone in there, with the day's dying light just illuminating his workbench through the louvred window just enough to 'sign off '. That's what he said, I'm signing off for the day. To no-one in particular, and maybe to ward off anything that lurked in the long shadows of late afternoons as they handed the world over to evening.
