Australian crime writers speak
Starting Monday, Karen Chisholm of Aust Crime Fiction, Damien Gay of Crime Down Under and Perry Middlemiss of Matilda will present their interviews in a project called the Australian Crime Fiction Snapshot. I'll be eagerly clicking all three links to see what some of my favorite Australian authors have to say, and I expect I may find some new favorites, too.
Perry says the list includes Shane Maloney, Peter Temple, Kerry Greenwood, Lucy Sussex "and a whole host of others." Australia is a thinly populated land, but a disproportionate number of the people who do live there are fine crime writers. Maloney and Temple alone ought to make for some entertaining and informative reading. I hope you'll join me in following these interviews.
