Victor Marsh

After earlier careers in theatre and television in Australia and California, Victor Marsh gained his doctorate in English from the University of Queensland. In 2010 he published a critical biography of the British writer Christopher Isherwood (Mr Isherwood Changes Trains) that focused on Isherwood's relationship with his guru, a Swami in the Ramakrishna Order, in California. During the 1970s and ’80s Dr. Marsh taught meditation on behalf of his own guru in a dozen countries around East Asia and the Pacific, and his account of that time, The Boy in the Yellow Dress, was published in April 2014 (Clouds of Magellan Press, Melbourne). He is working on a follow-up memoir, titled Victor Goes to Hollywood, as well as a novel. In 2011 he compiled and edited a collection of essays titled Speak Now, offering various perspectives on same-sex marriage in Australia. Recent short memoir pieces include 'A Touch of Silk: A (post)modern faerie tale', in Griffith REVIEW #42. He has also recorded an audio CD and is preparing a book of his poetry, Shakti Rising.
