With our small literary community it is probably inevitable that friends get to review each other, but should there be some limits, or ethical guidance, toensure fairness? And how can outsiders break into this cosy little world? Gideon Haigh and Kerryn Goldsworthy join Chris Flynn for a roundtable discussion.

The former publisher of Torpedo magazine, he writes for The Age, The Australian, Paris Review and ABC Radio National, and is editing a forthcoming issue of McSweeney’s partly devoted to Indigenous Australian fiction. Chris grew up Belfast and lives in Melbourne, and was once a sumo-wrestling referee in a travelling fair. A Tiger in Eden is his first novel.
