Melbourne Black #1

The first issue of Melbourne Black will be our next reading. It contains articles by some of the FRG participants, so they’ll be on hand to respond. The editors have also expressed an interest in feedback – critical and otherwise.

Sitting in a chair on the stoop was an old man who struck me as slightly comical: his beard and his hair were too big for the rest of his spindly body. He told me he was Uncle Jack Charles. Had I seen Bastardy? “Self‑declared leader. Write that down.” He grinned.
