A Room Made of Leaves is Kate Grenville’s first work of fiction in almost a decade. Set in 1788, this is a imaginative retelling of the life of Elizabeth Macarthur, the wife of notorious wool baron John Macarthur. It’s our number one selling book of last week and we’re pleased to be able to offer our customers signed copies – only while stocks last!

Other bestselling titles from last week include John Bolton’s memoir of his time as President Trump’s National Security Advisor (The Room Where It Happened), a new edition of Aileen Moreton-Robinson’s classic work exploring white feminism (Talkin' Up to the White Woman), Bernardine Evaristo’s Man Booker-winning novel (Girl, Woman, Other), and a seriously delicious Melbourne cookbook (Beatrix Bakes).

We’re also happy to see Growing Up Aboriginal in Australia listed here. For the month of July, Black Inc. are donating $2 from every sale of print copies of this anthology to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Readings will match this donation, so that $4 will be donated to the ILF for every print copy sold in our shops or through our website until 31 July, 2020.
