Two books from First Nations writers top our bestsellers list this week: Dark Emu is Bruce Pascoe’s game-changing work of history, and Growing Up Aboriginal in Australia is an anthology of short memoir reflecting a diverse array of voices. Another anthology that is being snapped up by readers is After Australia, in which eleven First Nations writers and writers of colour provide a glimpse of Australia as we head toward the year 2050.

Our bestsellers list also includes three works of non-fiction that ask readers to reflect on the world around them: Julia Baird’s rumination on internal happiness Phosphorescence, Rutger Bregman’s radical new history book Humankind and Layla F Saad’s groundbreaking workbook Me and White Supremacy.

Fiction lovers are still reading Sally Rooney’s Normal People (possibly inspired by the recent TV adaptation), Bernardine Evaristo’s Booker Prize winner, an engrossing literary mystery, and a juicy novel inspired by real life.
