We Were Liars

There’s not a lot we can tell you about what makes this book so wonderful, and if you ask us, we may have to lie. We Were Liars chronicles the summer holidays of the wealthy, distinguished Sinclair family on their private island. At first glance this novel appears to be a shallow look at a privileged life, but unfolds into something much more complex and gripping as it focuses on Cady Sinclair’s experiences, pre- and post-accident. With its lyrical prose and shifting narrative, We Were Liars is a haunting exploration of the dangers of mythologising the perfect family and the destruction that can be wrought by hiding from the truth.

Here Come the Dogs
by Omar Musa

Novels that tackle contemporary Australia are rarely as daring as this one—or as rewarding. The combination of prose and poetry is seamless. Its opening pages crackle with an immediacy that captivates. Here Come the Dogs tackles raw issues with an unflinching eye but still manages to soar and sparkle with lyrical beauty. Fantastic.
