    This fascinating work is the most subtle and complete account of one of the most significant periods of the production of Indigenous Australian writing to date. The traces of the oral and the written are equally complex and signifying, performative and fixed; they are both the product of and engender ‘messy’ social and textual relations. Editing, cleaning up the textual mess, is examined here as a textual politics, and Grossman never takes her eye off the ball as a series of texts are analysed from the 1980s to the end of the twentieth century. It is these possibilities and expanded productions – enabled by new theories, new technologies, and more democratic race relations – that this work pays critical homage to. — Stephen Muecke, University of New South Wales Part of the interest here is that Grossman can look back over more than a decade of intensive activity, academic and otherwise, in this field, in which she is already a key player. This project develops a sophisticated, intricate, and subtle inquiry which practises academic prose at its best. There is here a rigorous and generous attention to the work of other scholars, in Australia and elsewhere, to the diverse forms of cultural expression adopted by Indigenous Australians, and to the long and difficult process of learning that has produced this fine piece of scholarship. — Gillian Whitlock, University of Queensland
