In these candid and engaging interviews - complemented by photographs specially commissioned for this book - seventeen Australian authors and four book-industry veterans draw on their own experience to discuss writing, books, language and publishing.

Representing a diverse cross-section of fiction writing - from popular to literary, fantasy to children's and young adult - Literati's contributors share a lifelong passion for books and storytelling and a deep fund of practical knowledge. Literati explores their influences and inspirations, their fears and frustrations, their views on success and fame, research and writer's block, critics and craft.

Intimate, refreshing and sometimes very funny, these conversations offer fascinating insights into some of the country's foremost authors and into the writing process itself.
