The Suburban Review #15—SUBURBIA


The Suburban Review #15: SUBURBIA celebrates our namesake! Welcome to the suburbs, where everything is perfect, just don’t look too closely. Enjoy fiction, poetry, comics, and art about the almost-urban, about longing and familiarity, about horror and home. Love ’em or hate ’em, we all have stories of the suburbs. This issue plays with the grey area that lies between the mundane and the extraordinary.
Rebecca Bryson finds a mermaid in the backyard. Gareth Morgan‘s suburban vagabonds find beauty in the banal. Al Anderson directs an autobiographical movie. Drive from Wollongong to Sydney with Roger Patulny. Peer into the life of Lee Lai‘s astonishing neighbour. Check out Chadstone Shopping Centre with Madison Griffiths. Then watch the sun set over Tim Goschnick‘s roof.

We recommend the following EPUB readers for this TSR publication: Google Books, Apple iBooks, and Lithium (Adobe Digital Editions and Mozilla are not recommended). When reading poetry on your phone, we suggest tilting your phone screen sideways (so you are reading the publication on a landscape orientation) and using a smaller font. This allows for optimum representation of line breaks and spacing and is closest to the poet’s original layout.
This TSR issue has been designed for comfortable screen reader use. We recommend using NVDA along with Google Books, or using the in-built “Read Out Loud” function in Adobe Acrobat Reader. Please feel free to send us your feedback if you use this feature as we would love to hear from you and are always trying to improve our journal’s accessibility.
