Time Out Melbourne

Melburnian writers immortalise the city that inspires them

The punnily named Cartridge Family are a group of writers who received a grant from the City of Melbourne to publish this anthology about our fair metropolis. Highlights include Kevin Brophy’s prose poem about Sydney Road; an essay by Age journalist Henry Elliott about Paris and Melbourne; Jane Sullivan’s take on gold-rush Melbourne; ghostly goings-on courtesy of novelist Nick Gadd and futurist Peter Ellyard’s vision of how Melbourne can become a permanently livable city.

Melbourne Subjective (Cartridge Family Press) is out in August. $25.
