I read in the Australian that Brit Andrew Jefford has been appointed as Wine
writer in residence at Adelaide University.

I'm sure he will make a very good WWIR but obviously the Oz cultural cringe
has dictated that no colonial wine writers cut the proverbial mustard.

Cheers!
Martin

Boy, isn't that a rather oversensitive take? When Harvard invited
Octavio Paz as a writer, was that a statement that no American fiction
writer cut the mustard?

Yes - Australian universities also invite many overseas writers in
residence. But as this is the inaugural appointment I imagined it might go
to a local.

Cheers!
