Sometimes, we all need to get away… 

From mermaids and space matriarchs to fresh starts and flights of fancy, Griffith Review 74: Escape Routes explores what it means to break out and break free. 

Featuring new work from Behrouz Boochani, Kim Scott, Peggy Frew, Natalie Kon-yu, David Ritter and Alice Gorman, plus the four winners of Griffith Review’s inaugural Emerging Voices competition Declan Fry, Alison Gibbs, Vijay Khurana and Andrew Roff, Escape Routes takes us across borders to places once out of reach, heading over the horizon to access other worlds. 

Escape Routes is out now. A launch event will be hosted at Avid Reader on Thursday 11 November 2021 at 6:30 pm. You can register for the event online.
