Liberman, Serge


LIBERMAN, SERGE (1942– ), Australian writer of fiction. Born in Russia, Liberman arrived in Melbourne, Australia, with his parents in 1951. A physician, he became probably the best-known living Australian Jewish writer of fiction. Liberman published several volumes of short stories, including On Firmer Shores (1981), A Universe of Clowns (1983), The Life That I Have Led (1985), and The Battered and the Redeemed (1990). Essentially, Liberman tried to show both the inevitable failure of any view of life lacking a traditional base, but also the inadequacy of such a view in the modern secular world. He was also the editor of a Yiddish-oriented literary journal, the Melbourne Chronicle, and the co-compiler of the Bibliography of Australian Judaica (1987).

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
