Episode Notes

As our next guest tells The Colour Cycle, the great Australian author David Malouf is never referred to as the Great-Lebanese-Gay-Australian author. So do non-Anglo artists always have to represent the cultural identity of their parents or their birthplace? Why aren't they simply referred to as Australian artists? How does the colour of your skin or the language you speak at home inform your creative work? Does it have to?  In this episode, Author and TV and radio host Sunil Badami talks to Lena Nahlous about identity politics, and asks, what is the Australian voice and who does it belong to.
