Don Watson The Passion of Private White

From the bestselling author of The Bush comes the story of the meeting of two worlds: that of the intensely driven anthropologist Neville White, and the world of hunter-gatherer clans in remote northern Australia with whom he has lived and worked for half a century, mapping their culture and history. It is an insight into both our recent and our deep history from a master storyteller.

Jessica Johns Bad Cree

Canadian Jessica Johns’ debut reveals the power of dreams. Reviewer Robert Goodman said: ‘its cultural roots make Bad Cree much more than a horror story. The narrative is Johns’ way of illuminating and celebrating her community: its tribulations, its connections and most of all its resilience … a sometimes chilling, page-turning narrative.’

Dinuka McKenzie Taken

The new crime novel from the author of The Torrent. Detective Sergeant Kate Miles is back from maternity leave and struggling on multiple fronts. When an infant goes missing, Kate finds herself fronting a high-profile and emotionally fraught case. Was baby Sienna removed from her bassinet by an unknown abductor or is the answer much closer to home?

Stephen Orr The Boy in Time

Charting a child’s progress from the Outer Hebrides to a Mongolian desert, from war to kidnapping and much else besides, Stephen Orr’s impressionistic take on the short story captures a child’s bewilderment of what it’s like to be alive.
