'Overland' is Australia's most exciting literary magazine -- and the only major journal to publish from an explicitly progressive perspective. Since 1954, it has featured essays, fiction, poetry, reviews, comments and artwork from the nation's best writers and thinkers, from Patrick White to Cate Kennedy. Now in its fifty-ninth year, 'Overland' continues to highlight ideas and authors you won't find anywhere else. In edition 218 Overland looks at: * The politics of torture * Writers and jealousy * The meaning of David Bowie * Australia's atomic fair * Death in the age of Facebook * Political struggle in video games. Plus there is prize-winning poetry; new fiction and much, much more.
