The conversation between Antony Loewenstein and Christos Tsiolkas with which Overland 193 will be launched promises to be an exciting event, not simply because of Antony’s forthcoming essay on oil and the Middle East, but also because Christos will have just launched his much anticipated new book The Slap.

Here’s an account by Stephen Murray-Smith from Overland 37: The notable series of Meanjin–Overland test matches continued this year, with Overland winning the engraved emu egg trophy by a (genuine) one run victory in fading light. Spectators almost stopped drinking in the last fifteen minutes, so tight was the suspense. The match was played at the Moorooduc on the Mornington Peninusula on 5th March. Of the nine tests played since 1959, two have been drawn, Meanjin have won four and Overland three. Top scorers in this last match were (for Meanjin) L. Clancy (50) and A.G. Serle (33) and (for Overland) N. Munday (42) and D. Kendall (36). C.B Christensen scored 7 and I scored 6. admin More by admin › Overland is a not-for-profit magazine with a proud history of supporting writers, and publishing ideas and voices often excluded from other places.

This time a few weeks ago the busyness and chaos of bricolage arts and academic labour had so efficiently distracted me from my anxiety about the upcoming referendum that I forgot to prepare myself for its inevitable conclusion.
