Robert Hughes

I've just started reading Hughes' "The Fatal Shore" for the first time and I was stunned. His use of fresh and vivid metaphors in sometimes dry subject-matter is inspiring to me, as a writer of non-fiction and now I think he's right up there with George Orwell. (Who, I learnt from this article, that he also modelled his prose on.)

Anyone with this kind of intellectual gift that he, Germaine Greer or Barry Humphries has (still) faces the choice of staying in Australia or leaving to find a wider audience.
