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.
