Every life offers a unique story – but some lives stand out so distinctly they leave their mark on the world. How do some people make such a difference – and trigger change both at large and close to home?
Griffith Review 58: Storied Lives – The Novella Project Vfocuses on people who have effected a change in the world. It looks at the lives of others – real and imagined – that have created a narrative that resonates.
Their stories, personal, political, scientific or cultural, help map change, and illustrate how an individual life can coalesce with history to leave an enduring mark. For the first time, Griffith Review‘s Novella Project combines both fiction and non-fiction in order to highlight the rich diversity of writing talent in Australia.
Contributors include Kristina Olsson, Laura Elvery, Chris Somerville, Frank Moorhouse, Cassandra Pybus, Biff Ward, Krissy Kneen and Heather Taylor Johnson.
Griffith Review 58: Storied Lives is published with the support of the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund and Australia Council for the Arts.
