"Here are the most memorable contributions published over the last ten years in Overland, the Australian literary magazine that has broken through the culture-barrier and encouraged thousands of readers to consider literature as something important in their daily lives.
It is the first collection of material from a literary magazine in Australia to be published in book form - a testimony in itself to Overland's vitality and impact. Whether it is Eric Lambert guying the R.S.L., or Arthur Phillips focusing critical attention on Barbara Baynton for the first time in fifty years, or a bitterly incisive story of cockydom by John Morrison, every line breathes the conviction - epitomised in Overland - that our writers have something to say that everyone should stop and listen to."
