There were other really beaut books in the shortlist, but I feel that this one fulfils all my criteria for a worthy winner. It’s delicious to read, it’s thought-provoking, it’s about modern multicultural Australia, it’s about contemporary social issues – and people will still be reading it in years to come and agreeing that it’s a great book.
Congratulations to the author, her editor and the team at Allen and Unwin!
PS Many thanks to the publicist at Honner media for the helpful email announcement – at 1.32om :)
