Last month, while I was overseas, the Miles Franklin Award shortlist was announced.

The Shortlist consists of the following books:

  • Felicity Castagna - No More Boats
  • Michelle de Krester - The Life to Come
  • Eva Hornung - The Last Garden
  • Catherine McKinnon - Storyland

The Winner of this prestigious literary award will be revealed on 26 August. My money is on Gerald Murnane, with Kim Scott as a close second.
