Not Wrong Just Different by Katharine Brisbane
Book DescriptionA collection of writings and commentary from Australia's foremost theatre writer and Currency Press founder. 'Not Wrong Just Different' traces the development of theatre in Australia from the time that Katharine Brisbane joined the staff of the fledgling Australian in mid-1967 as its national theatre critic. The book is divided into easily navigable sections, which consist of her columns from the Australian, Theatre Australia and The National Times. From Brecht to Barry Humphries, from Chekhov to Patrick White, Katharine Brisbane's lucid account of Australian theatre is comprehensively presented in this original collection. A dedicated observer and chronicler of the arts in Australia, Katharine Brisbane is a compelling voice for our times and her book highlights the force of the arts, and especially the theatre, in civil society; demonstrating the capacity of theatre to show us who we are. Equally importantly the book is about journalism and the influence of a larrikin national newspaper in providing a forum for a national conversation at a time of turbulence and change.
