I feel that I should have read more of them and some of my uni lecturers certainly encouraged us to, but I have only read a couple, with a few others languishing on my shelves unread. I did really enjoy The Well by Elizabeth Jolley and Jack Maggs by Peter Carey.
This is the first time I have heard of her.
Did you not see film, 'My Brilliant Career'?

Never heard of that either.
As a Brit, I haven't heard of this award before. Come to think of it, I can't recall reading any Australian fiction! Thank you for highlighting this, I shall go and see what I can find now :)
