Cambria Press congratulates Dr. Brigitta Olubas on yet another fabulous review on her highly praised book Shirley Hazzard: Literary Expatriate and Cosmopolitan Humanist!
The journal Contemporary Women’s Writing praises the book, stating that:
“To read Brigitta Olubas’s Shirley Hazzard: Literary Expatriate and Cosmopolitan Humanist must be to have something like the experience of the readers of feminist recovery projects in the 1970s … As the first book on Hazzard, Olubas’s monograph makes an important contribution to contemporary literary scholarship. Yet the book’s achievement far exceeds its initiatory work … will certainly be of interest to scholars of contemporary Australian literature, new modernist studies, and gender studies. But both Hazzard and Olubas’s monograph on her are out of bounds – in the best sense. This book extends far beyond any national, aesthetic, or ideological disciplinary categories. Like Hazzard, it should travel far.”
The book has also been hailed as being “scrupulously scholarly” by The Australian––read more at the Cambria Press blog post about it––and is in the Cambria Press Australian Literature Series headed by Dr. Susan Lever, author of the highly acclaimed book David Foster: The Satirist of Australia. Not surprisingly, the book was also very well received at the 2013 MLA Cambria Press book exhibit.
