This article explores literary practices placing the writer in dialogue with theplaces he has inhabited recently while researching the Australian novel. Thisincludes a fictocritical engagement with place-based Australian literature (viaXavier Herbert and Randolph Stow) and a maverick whizz through deconstruc-tion and genre studies. Written in an elegiac mode punctuated by an environ-mental humanities countersignature, this example of period rhetoric embodiesautobiography in the Anthropocene, the event horizon of human signature.
