“Since 2007, The Lifted Brow has grown into Australia’s most exciting literary magazine, publishing hot local talent like Benjamin Law, Romy Ash, and Anna Krien alongside international stars like Karen Russell, Heidi Julavits, and David Foster Wallace.

The Best of The Lifted Brow celebrates five years of sheer nerve and dangerous excess. Alongside strange, sharp fiction from Frank Moorhouse, Christos Tsiolkas, and Rick Moody, there’s personal essay and reportage that ranges wide and digs deep: Luke Ryan gets cancer twice, Michaela McGuire sabotages her casino job, Liam Pieper investigates how cocaine gets to Australia, and Alice Pung discovers just how different girls can grow up to be.”
