'Overland' is Australia's most exciting literary magazine -- and the only major journal to publish from an explicitly progressive perspective. Since 1954, it has featured essays, fiction, poetry, reviews, comments and artwork from the nation's best writers and thinkers, from Patrick White to Cate Kennedy. Now in its fifty-ninth year, 'Overland' continues to highlight ideas and authors you won't find anywhere else. In edition 217 Overland looks at: * Sherlock Holmes versus alienation * Loving music you should hate * Happiness as a trademark * Immigrant writing and authenticity * The evolution of social realism. Plus prize-winning fiction; new cartoons and original artwork; poetry and much, much more.
