Cambria Press Book Review: Shirley Hazzard: Literary Expatriate and Cosmopolitan Humanist — Scrupulously Scholarly!

Front Cover of Shirley Hazzard:  Literary Expatriate and Cosmopolitan Humanist

Cambria Press congratulates Dr. Brigitta Olubas on the glowing review review of her book, Shirley Hazzard: Literary Expatriate and Cosmopolitan Humanist, by The Australian.

The book review praises the book for being “scrupulously scholarly” and adds that Olubas’s “primary observations are laid down on vast tranches of secondary reading, and she situates Hazzard’s achievement within contemporary developments in literary theory. Nonetheless Olubas’s prose is lucid and, within the obligations of the academic context, elegant.” The review also adds the resounding recommendation that this “work should be read by anyone with an interest in Hazzard or in cosmopolitanism more generally.”

The review could not arrive at a better time, right after the first international Hazzard conference which was held at the Heyman Center, Columbia University. There are still places at this event. It features 12 academic papers on Shirley Hazzard’s work, including papers by Gail Jones and Martin Stannard, along with a number of highly graded literary scholars from Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Dr. Olubas was there to present her work and for the American launch of the book, which was just published by Cambria Press.
