Murray Bail at The Quarterly Conversation

There is a review of Murray Bail at The Quarterly Conversation. I’m always leery of comparisons to Borges because they seldom turn out to be true. The writer always has the intellectual elements, playing with texts, playing with the notions of knowledge, yet they lack the precision and the dedication to the narrative that is in itself a precise search and is part of the play, especially the works that come from Ficciones and The Aleph.

That said, Murray Bail sounds interesting and how often do you a chance to see the Aussie view—of course, you could settle for Australia.
