    Eureka Street’s founding publisher Michael Kelly is one of the Australian Jesuits who had long discussed a journal of intelligent comment on topical issues in church and society. The models included long-running Jesuit publications overseas including America in the USA, established in 1909, and the The Month in Britain (1864-2001).

    Andrew Hamilton and Peter Steele: boys with writing in their blood

    • Andrew Hamilton
    • 03 December 2010

    As I reflect back now, I can see the difference between Peter's urge to write and my own. My hero was the master of terseness, Tacitus. But Peter wanted to find words, and ways of putting words together, that could unfold the shape of what lay beyond words.

    Best of 2009: Michael McGirr's waking life

    • Morag Fraser
    • 08 January 2010

    McGirr seems more the magpie than the dormouse. Even when he's curling up under his desk for a post lunch kip you figure he's just giving his brain a few horizontal minutes to organise and file the prodigious miscellany that might otherwise leak out. July 2009

    When we began Eureka Street in 1991, it was a given that we'd publish a cryptic crossword. I like to believe it was divinely ordained that it should be Joan, only and always, who'd keep us gridded, intellectually tempered and clued up.
