Summary
Over the next two decades, Craig became involved in an invigoration of Australian writing and publishing, with University of Queensland Press at its centre. After reading Carey's work in the indie magazine Tabloid Story, Craig published Carey's short-story collection, The Fat Man in History. He went on to edit several of Carey's novels, as well as David Malouf's classic semi-autobiographical novel Johnno. Craig championed the work of Olga Masters and Barbara Hanrahan, edited the stories of a young Murray Bail, and became firm friends with author and Top of the Lake scriptwriter Gerard Lee and his then wife, Jane Campion. Over the course of his long career, he also encountered an irascible Xavier Herbert, hardworking journalist Hugh Lunn, raconteur Herb Wharton, master storyteller Elizabeth Jolley, and then-emerging talent Kate Grenville. Just as importantly, Craig mentored and trained passionate editors who are today well-known agents, editors, and publishers. -- [unknown]
