Antigone Kefala – A writer’s journey

Edited by Vrasidas Karalis & Helen Nickas

The book is a critical look at the life and works of Antigone Kefala, a poet and prose writer who came to the Antipodes in the early fifties and since 1960 calls Australia home. It comprises a selection of interviews, reviews and essays (previously published, or newly commissioned), giving a fascinating insight into this writer – originally a Greek from Romania. The book aims to stimulate a wide-ranging dialogue on the state of Australian literature and the place within it of writers like Antigone Kefala.
