Halfway House: the poetics of Australian spaces. Eds. Jennifer Rutherford and Barbara Holloway. UWA Publishing, 2010.

Barbara Brooks


Halfway House is an impressive collection of essays that shows the range and depth of writing about place and space in Australia – scholarly, border-crossing, creative, always surprising, always making new connections.

The book acknowledges no borders or fences.
