Miller Takes Out Melbourne Prize For Literature

Posted at 7:20AM Thursday 08 Nov 2012

ALEX Miller reckons writing serious fiction is a dangerous occupation. He says it is an act of imaginative truth that "requires the writer to confront unclear aspects of the self; to delve, in other words, into the unconscious and awaken repressed emotions and memories". As a novelist, he has been leading a dangerous life for many years.

But it's not all danger.

Last night was a time for celebration as he won the $60,000 Melbourne Prize for Literature. It's the third time the triennial prize has been presented and the third time Miller has been shortlisted.
