Hilary Mantel’s The Mirror and the Light has retained the throne for another week. Also on the list are a number of stellar fiction titles: the absorbing Where the Crawdads Sing; heavy hitting US titles Weather and Such a Fun Age; and the 2019 Booker Prize-winning Girl, Woman, Other. As well as these international titles, there are two excellent Australian offerings: Dervla McTiernan’s addictive crime-thriller The Good Turn, and Trent Dalton’s Boy Swallows Universe.

Julia Baird’s newly-released memoir on searching for the ‘light within’, Phosphorescence, and Margaret Simons’s Cry Me A River are books whose releases we were planning to celebrate in the physical world, and even though those plans couldn’t go ahead, they are clearly still finding their way into the hands of readers.
