Ben Hobson Snake Island

The new thriller from the author of To Become a Whale. Vernon and Penelope never want to see their son Caleb again after he bashed his wife and ended up in gaol. But when Vernon hears that his son is being regularly beaten by a local criminal as the police stand by, he knows he must act: he cannot turn his back on his son in his hour of need. But is he ready for the hell this brings down on his family? ‘Snake Island takes you to the limits of human emotion.’ – Candice Fox

Dominic Carew No Neat Endings

A young man can’t make love. A girl rocks up to a Tinder date wearing a helmet. In these 19 short stories, Dominic Carew pits his characters against the challenges of modern life, sex, love, work and the world. A man observes his brother’s rise to comic stardom with envy and angst. A friend returns from Brazil and becomes embroiled in a drug-fuelled romp in a share house. ‘A rogues gallery of funny, heartfelt and unflattering adventures … Carew is a sharp comic satirist of the 21st-century Australian male.’ – Luke Carman

Angela Rockel Rogue Intensities

Winner of the 2019 Dorothy Hewett Award for an Unpublished Manuscript, this memoir records decades of daily encounters with the natural world in southern Tasmania. Each month Angela Rockel observes the weather, birdlife, animals, trees, and even a platypus swimming in the dam, charting the changes around her. ‘Rockel’s work is a call to action based on a life of bearing witness to a changing climate.’ – Judges’ report, Dorothy Hewett Award

Yumna Kassab The House of Youssef

This debut collection of short stories explores the lives of Lebanese migrants living in western Sydney. They circle around themes of isolation, family expectations and nostalgia for the home country, as well as relationships and the customs which complicate them: children growing away from their parents, the dark secrets in marriage, and the breakable bonds between friends.
