I've been listenting to the audio version of The Dressmaker by Rosalie Ham, which I'm enjoying so far. It's a bit different from the film.

I'm still reading a feminist sci fi novel called Salvage by Alexandra Duncan. So far it's terrific. Soon I'm going to start a thriller called The End of the World Running Club by Adrian J Walker, which looks interesting.

I'm also reading Prince Caspian, book four of The Chronicles of Narnia, to my daughter. We're both enjoying it.

I am reading a couple of comic series, so I will shortly be reading the latest issues of Bitch Planet and The Wicked and the Divine, and possibly some more Lumberjanes.
This month I have been reading Janet McCalman's Struggletown: Portrait of an Australian Working-Class Community 1900 - 1965. It was written in the 1980s, and is based on her interviews with people who grew up in the Melbourne suburb of Richmond in the early 1900s. Despite being non-fiction, it has the continuity of a novel, populated by characters who entrusted McCalman to tell their stories. A fascinating read, especially when contrasted to the gentrified Richmond of today.
'The Oxley-Gatton Murders', 'Why Did They Do It', 'One Piece of the Puzzle'.

All true-crime genre.

Still on first book at mo. Inept, & disorganised Police totally stuffed-up investigation in many ways. Top cop investigating seems to have had a 'hidden agenda'. Had killer in custody, & let him go.

Nobody was EVER held accountable for these crimes! SNAFU!
