Malcolm Turnbull’s candid and lively political memoir tops last week’s list of our bestselling books. A Bigger Picture tells the story of the former Prime Minster’s life and career, and we’re pleased to share that the man himself will be discussing the book with the ABC’s Rafael Epstein at a free online event tonight. Find out more here.

Last week also saw Jess Hill named the winner of the 2020 Stella Prize for her meticulously researched account of domestic violence in Australia. See What You Made Me Do is our second biggest seller of last week and an urgent, deeply important read. Combining rigorous research with riveting storytelling, Hill puts perpetrators – and the systems that enable them – in the spotlight, and asks readers to radically rethink how we can confront this national crisis of fear and abuse.

Our list also includes three terrific works from emerging Australian authors. Ronnie Scott’s The Adversary is a fun, smart, witty novel set over one sticky Melbourne summer. Pip Williams’s The Dictionary of Lost Words is a literary detective tale inspired by creation of the first Oxford Dictionary. Hilde Hinton’s The Loudness of Unsaid Things is a quirky rewarding read for fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.
