Title: "Due Preparations for the Plague" by Janette Turner Hospital. [review - radio script]
Authors: Dooley, Gillian Mary
Keywords: Gillian Dooley
Issue Date: 9-Jun-2003
Citation: Dooley, Gillian 2003. Review of "Due Preparations for the Plague" by Janette Turner Hospital. 'Writers’ Radio, Radio Adelaide', broadcast on 9 June 2003.
Abstract: Janette Turner Hospital’s new novel "Due Preparations for the Plague" is gripping and compulsive reading, while at the same time being intelligent and erudite. She has used a formidable range of sources and references, both as epigraphs throughout the book and as parallels to illustrate the action. The plague has inspired works by Boccaccio and Daniel Defoe – the novel’s title comes from one of his works – and Albert Camus, all of which Hospital has drawn upon, and other epigraphs come from Shakespeare, Lewis Carroll and Jorge Luis Borges.
