About the Author

ALICE CURRY is an Honorary Associate of Macquarie University in Sydney and the Advisor, Children's Literature to the Commonwealth Education Trust in London. With degrees from Oxford University and Macquarie University, she is the author of several academic articles and the editor of A River of Stories: Tales and Poems from Across the Commonwealth, illustrated by Jan Pienkowski.


'The six main chapters chart a winding path that allows Curry's discursive trajectory to constantly dip into and out of her chosen novels at will, thereby casting a critical eye over topics such as climate change, posthumanism, spirituality, social justice, ecophobia, identity politics, globalisation and the neoliberal hegemonic and patriarchal power structures that exist to dominate human beings and the environment alike Curry's approach in this book allows for interesting and individual readings of particular sections in the primary texts she discusses.' - Anthony Pavlik, Lulea University of Technology, Sweden
