This week’s bestsellers list includes many of our favourite Australian authors: Christos Tsiolkas with Barracuda, Hannah Kent with Burial Rites, Graeme Simsion with The Rosie Project, Tim Winton with Eyrie, Richard Flanagan with The Narrow Road to the Deep North and Markus Zusak with The Book Thief. The film adaptation of this last novel is due for release on Thursday and we’re very excited to see how the story is translated for the screen. You can read a terrific piece by Zusak where he reflects on the book’s journey right here.

Readers are also loving Bewitched and Bedevilled: Women Write the Gillard Years in which a selection of Australia’s most influential, entertaining and controversial female voices examine the country’s reaction to Julia Gillard and debate the successes and failures of her prime ministership.

Also included on the list is John Williams' Stoner: A Novel, first released in 1965. The story of an academic whose life is full of disappointments, Julian Barnes recently wrote on the book, calling it ‘a true reader’s novel’. You can read his thoughts here.
