Linda Jaivin

Australia

Author, essayist and sinophile

Linda Jaivin is one of Australia’s most versatile writers. Her work spans humour, eroticism, social issues (The Infernal Optimist is set in an immigration detention centre), China studies, literary translation and cultural commentary. She has appeared on ABC’s Q & A and was a regular panelist on the now sadly defunct Critical Mass. She presented a three-part radio documentary on the subject of privacy called Nothing to Hide for Radio National’s Earshot program and another, four-part series on the state of arts criticism in Australia, Situation Critical, for Arts Hub.
