A Companion to Australian Aboriginal Literature, edited by Belinda Wheeler. Rochester, New York: Camden House, 2013. Paperback edition (2015), 216 pp. £19.99. ISBN: 9781571139382.
After Nicholas Birns and Rebecca McNeer’s A Companion to Australian Literature Since 1900 (2007), American publisher Camden House confirms their vested interest in publishing edited scholarly collections on Australian literature, now putting Aboriginal fiction in the limelight with Belinda Wheeler’s three volumes: A Companion to Australian Aboriginal Literature (2013), A Companion to the Works of Kim Scott (2016) and the forthcoming Companion to the Works of Alexis Wright.
First published as a hardback and then released two years later in paperback, A Companion to Australian Aboriginal Literature is a collection of eleven essays by non-Indigenous and Indigenous Australia-based academics and international scholars alike.
