Pages 23

Winner of the first International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award in 1996 for his novel Remembering Babylon, also shortlisted for the 1993 Booker Prize, David Malouf is one of Australia’s most critically successful writers. Malouf works in several forms, including poetry, the novel, libretto, and drama. His fiction appeared in Australian Gay and Lesbian Writing (1993) and The Faber Book of Gay Short Fiction (1991). Malouf says, “If I were to name the people who have been most influential on me as a poet, I would have to say Rilke, and Stevens, and, in a very different way, Auden.”
