Our bestselling book of last week is The Testaments by Margaret Atwood. Set 15 years after Atwood’s 1985 classic The Handmaid’s Tale, her new novel is similarly styled as a series of historical documents and follows three narrators as they describe their lives in the world of Gilead. Read our review here.

Compelling non-fiction reads from Australians Bruce Pascoe, Annabel Crabb and Tyson Yunkaporta are all listed here, as well as new new titles from bestselling authors Malcolm Gladwell and William Dalrymple. A rush of pre-orders for Patti Smith’s forthcoming memoir, Year of the Monkey, have also bumped it into our bestsellers – look out for its release tomorrow!

And we’re very happy to see the anthology, We Refugees, among these books. Edited by Emma Larking, this anthology brings together a collection of stories, essays and poetry, and was launched last week by Julian Burnside.
