Amor Towles The Lincoln Highway

The new novel from the author of A Gentleman in Moscow is a road trip across the United States of the 1950s. Emmett, newly released from juvenile detention, plans to take his eight-year-old brother, Billy, to San Francisco, to start a new life. But the unexpected arrival of two fellow inmates results in a detour along the Lincoln Highway. Reviewer CJ Pardey wrote: ‘The plot of The Lincoln Highway is driven by the appearance of good, then evil, then good, something like an American two-step, but Towles ensures enough complexity to keep his readers guessing as to what will happen next.’

Yvonne Weldon Sixty Seven Days

Yvonne Weldon’s debut novel blends a love story with Wiradjuri dreaming.

‘A stunning, heart-breaking, heart-stealing novel of the burden of trauma and loss but also the strength, warmth and healing power of love. Yvonne Weldon brings to life – through the power of her words – a sense of place, spirit, community and the complicated, unbreakable bonds that tie us to each other.’ – Larissa Behrendt

Chad Taylor Blue Hotel

In 1987 leather-clad tourist Blanca Nul goes missing in New Zealand at the height of summer. A year to the day after her disappearance is reported, she is mysteriously sighted. But her doppelganger is identified as local goth Amber Drake and labelled a suicide. Reporter Ray Moody is not convinced, and discovers both women share a connection to a place called the Blue Hotel.

Blue Hotel‘s wily, tangled narrative is pure enjoyment, and the tenderness of its damaged characters is deeply affecting.’ – Tim Rogers

Audrey Magee The Colony

The new novel from the author of The Undertaking explores the impact of colonialism on one small island. Reviewer Ann Skea wrote: ‘Magee writes fluently and imaginatively. Each character comes to life as an individual with an inner world of their own, and their conversations, humour and emotions carry the main story easily and enjoyably … Lloyd and JP come to the island because it has something they want; they use the people for their own ends, change lives and language, then return to their own countries and leave their mess behind. All this can be seen as an allegory for colonialism everywhere …’
