November Rewind


Three ace Aussie picks in my November rewind

2012: Ru by Kim Thúy – delicately told memoir about a family fleeing Vietnam for Canada.

2013: Barracuda by Christos Tsiolkas – a ripping read (and a fantastic mini-series to watch if you’re inclined).

2014: This House of Grief by Helen Garner – haunting.

2015: The Natural Way of Things by Charlotte Wood – an important and frightening book.

2016: Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf – a little bit heartbreaking.

2017: The Ice Storm by Rick Moody – the perfect urban-drama.

  1. For once our reading overlaps, I own ’13, read ’14 recently, and agree with you totally on ’15. As for ’16 – is a little bit heart breaking a bit like a little bit pregnant?
