Those of you who have visited the homepage recently may have spied our summery damsel enjoying a read and a vino. Yes, Issue Four of Kill Your Darlings will arrive in bookshops and on doorsteps on January 14. We’re excited to share it with you, and delighted to outline what the issue holds in store.

The issue opens with Emily Maguire’s ‘The Invisible Women: Carers in Australian Families’, in which she records three women’s experiences caring for ill and disabled family members. Other commentary includes Caroline Hamilton on Jonathan Franzen and his cultural ambivalence, an extract from Olivia Guntarik’s memoir-in-progress and Luke Ryan on the death of boredom. We’ve got new fiction from Peggy Frew, Michael Sala and Louise Swinn, and we chat with Salley Vickers about her latest book, Aphrodite’s Hat. Click to view the contents here.
