A Tour through my Critics


  • Rae Desmond Jones


When Elaine Lindsay bravely asked me to speak at this Conference, she suggested tentatively that I might like to address the question of why reviewers of my recent novel 'Wisdom' had so completely ignored the spiritual references which are smattered frequently throughout the text. The prospect of attempting such a task has many attractions. I am sure any author who has been on the receiving end of a difficult review would agree. It does raise the delightful prospect of being able to review the reviewers, and to re-establish oneself as the author in the place of prime importance.
