Aussie and Kiwi Books on the Dublin Literary Award Longlist

It’s very late here now, so I hope I haven’t missed any, but there are the Aussie and Kiwi titles that I spotted on the Dublin Literary Award longlist:

  • The Strays by Emily Bitto (see my review)
  • Lost and Found by Brooke Davis (see Karenlee Thompson’s review)
  • The Golden Boys by Sonya Hartnett
  • The Claimant by Janet Turner Hospital
  • The Eye of the Sheep by Sofie Laguna
  • The Golden Age by Joan London (see my review)
  • Here Come the Dogs by Omar Musa

And from New Zealand:

  • The Bright Side of My Condition by Charlotte Randall (see my review)
  • Where the Rēkohu Bone Sings by Tina Makereti


  1. Some interesting books there … not that I’ve read more than a couple, but I’m happy to see those authors representing us!


    • Yes, it’s always good to be in the international spotlight.

  2. Thanks for sharing, Lisa. I’m been meaning to read Lost and Found for ages now…must add that to the old TBR pile.


    • The trouble is, it’s so hard to keep up with all the awards!
