Gerald Murnane Landscape With Landscape
Murnane’s first collection of short fiction, republished after 30 years, traces a journey through Melbourne as the author negotiates the conflicting demands of Catholicism and sex, self-consciousness and intimacy, alcohol and literature. ‘… the space that Landscape with Landscape truly inhabits [is] that of the imagination. – Shannon Burns, the Australian.

Helen Thurloe Promising Azra
When 16-year-old Azra wins a place in a national science competition she imagines her biggest problem is getting her parents’ permission to go. But she doesn’t know they’re busy arranging her marriage to an older cousin she’s never met. In Pakistan. In just three months’ time. ‘Helen Thurloe’s Promising Azra is a powerful human interest story.’ – Natalie Patten, Readings bookshop.

Brent Weeks The Blood Mirror
Gavin Guile, ex-emperor, ex-Prism, ex-galley slave, formerly the one man who might have averted war, is now lost, broken and trapped in a prison crafted by his own magical genius. But he has no magic at all. Worse, he might not be alone in his prison. ‘One of the best examples of modern fantasy that I have read,’ – Fantasy Fiction.

Chris Cleave Everyone Brave is Forgiven
When war is declared, Mary North leaves finishing school unfinished, goes straight to the War Office, and signs up. Love and passion during World War II entangle three lives in violence, friendship and deception, inexorably shaping lives and illuminating human battles. ‘With Everyone Brave Is Forgiven Cleave cements his reputation as a skilful storyteller, and a sensitive chronicler of the interplay between the political and the personal.’ – Hannah Beckerman in the Guardian.
