We were delighted to recently host a special event with one of Australia’s most celebrated authors – Peter Carey. His new novel, A Long Way from Home, was voted one of our top 10 best fiction books of 2017, and it’s our bestselling title from the past week. You can read an interesting Q&A with Carey about the book and his writing here.

Other bestselling Australian books include Jane Harper’s breathless literary thriller (Force of Nature), Alex Miller’s deeply personal new novel (The Passage of Love), Richard Flanagan’s mordantly funny new work (First Person), and two gorgeous hardcover anthologies of Helen Garner’s work (Stories and True Stories).

Don’t forget – you can buy both of these anthologies in a specially priced bundle. This might just make the perfect Christmas gift.

Other books that are proving popular and would make excellent presents are this year’s Man Booker Prize winner (Lincoln in the Bardo), Stephen Fry’s unique retelling of the Greek myths (Mythos) and a beautifully evoked feline roadtrip novel (The Travelling Cat Chronicles).
