John Bryson is a former solicitor and barrister, now journalist, lecturer and fiction writer. His best-known work is Evil Angels (Penguin, 1985), chronicling the trials of Lindy Chamberlain over the death of her daughter Azaria, snatched by a dingo from a campsite near Uluru in 1980. He discusses his essay in Griffith REVIEW 42 which deals with the myths and superstitions which have attached to the Chamberlain case, one of the most divisive and disturbing in Australia’s recent history, with Madeleine Watts.

You’ve been covering the Chamberlain trial for almost thirty years now, through Evil Angelsas well as other articles and essays, like this one in Griffith REVIEW, over the years. What has kept you returning to the case?
