Michael Wilding and the Fiction of Instant Experience: Stories, Novels, and Memoirs, 1963-2012

by Don Graham. This year Don Graham, J. Frank Dobie Regents Professor of American and English Literature at the University of Texas at Austin, published his latest book, Michael Wilding and the Fiction of Instant Experience: Stories, Novels, and Memoirs, 1963-2012 (Teneo Press). Wilding’s many contributions to Australian literature have been overlooked in recent years. With this book, Graham seeks to restore Wilding to the forefront of Australia literature and help to revive Australian literary studies.  His interest in Wilding grew out of his participation in 1991 in a faculty exchange program that the Clark Center’s founding director, John Higley, organized between the University of Texas and the University of Sydney. Graham is also to be congratulated for receiving a Regents Outstanding Teaching Award in 2013. To order a copy, visit Teneo Press Online.
