MILES FRANKLIN LONGLIST ANNOUNCED.

Flames by Robbie Arnott is such a wonderful unique and original book, while Boy Swallows Universe has been one of my favourite reads for the year. There are some expected appearances like Too Much Lip by Melissa Lucashenko and there are some books that I have never even heard of.

Boy Swallows Universe by Trent Dalton
A Sand Archive by Gregory Day
Inappropriation by Lexi Freiman
A Stolen Season by Rodney Hall
