There's a bookly blockbusting Spring and Summer descending on us (like). Flanagan, Tsiolkas, Winton - the boys are back, and they're angry – three heavy weights of Australian writing tackle, amongst everything else, the contemporary Australian male condition. And the ladies? Big big novels from Donna Tartt and Elizabeth Gilbert (forget any notion of Eat Pray Love this woman writes terrific fiction too) and Eleanor Catton's enormous Booker Prize shortlisted Luminaries.
Here is a picy of B1 and B2 congratulating Clive on winning ABC Centre of the Year for the whole of Australia – and a BIG congratulations to Ruth who manages the centre!!!!!
Break out the bubbly – we are alive and kickin’ in Tassie!!!!!!
