Miles Franklin shortlist for 2010

April 21, 2010

It seems vaguely silly for all we bloggers to be announcing the same thing – except that perhaps each of us has a slightly different readership so maybe it’s not completely redundant for me to announce here what has already been announced elsewhere – at Musings of a Literary Dilettante.

The Dilettante has provided links to the Judges’ comments, so please check out his link (here) if you’d like to see them. The shortlist though is:

  • Alex Miller’s Lovesong
  • Brian Castro’s The bath fugues
  • Craig Silvey’s Jasper Jones
  • Deborah Forster’s The book of Emmett
  • Peter Temple’s Truth
  • Sonya Hartnett’s Butterfly

To date, I’ve still only read Jasper Jones, though Lovesong is creeping up the pile!

Now the fun – and the wait – really begin.

    I’m delighted to see Truth and Butterfly go through and am am going to have to read Love song soon as well. The book of Emmett also sounds interesting.

      I’m keen to read both Truth and Lovesong. I nearly bought Butterfly the other day but I just wasn’t sure. Now that it’s been shortlisted I think I really should!

    I don’t mind at all if you pass on the same info as other bloggers. I only subscribe to yours, and as long as I keep up with it, I consider myself relatively well informed 🙂 Thanks!

      Well, there you are, I knew there was a reason. I will continue to do it just for you!
