In the issue's cover essay, 'Quest and Queerness: Role-Playing Identity', Adolfo Aranjuez writes on sexuality, gender and the trouble with pinning down a satisfactory, and true, sense of self. He settles on queer. 'Queer is fallible but it embodies the very illusory stability that it challenges. Non-binary, mongrel Asian, dual citizen, identity double bind-for me queer is coming home.' Plus, in other non-fiction: Katharine Murphy, Henry Reynolds, Ruby Hamad, Tony Birch, Greg Melleuish, Omar Sakr and more. There's memoir from: Shu-Ling Chua, Na'ama Carlin, Joan Fleming, Shane Maloney and Indigo Perry. New fiction from: Nicholas Jose, Jennifer Mills, Lola Button, and Rafeif Ismail. And poetry from: Judith Beveridge, Simeon Kronenberg, Stephen Edgar, Pam Brown,Ashley Haywood, Sarah Day, Melinda Smith, David McCooey, and Madeleine Dale. Plus: Shaun Micallef gets lost in renovation.
