  10. No Friend But the Mountains by Behrouz Boochani (translated by Omid Tofighian)

Our bestselling book of last week is Michelle Obama’s memoir, Becoming. One of the most anticipated books of 2018, this is a warm and candid read that offers new insight into her childhood in working class Chicago and the realities of her life in the White House.

Other bestselling non-fiction from last week include some fantastic titles from Australian authors Leigh Sales (Any Ordinary Day), Chloe Hooper (The Arsonist) and Bruce Pascoe (Dark Emu). We’re also happy to see Behrouz Boochani’s No Friend But the Mountains back on this list. This is his account of life in one of Australia’s refugee detention camps and it’s an incredibly important and timely work that we recommend everyone reads.

Finally, if you’re looking for the perfect beach read, three fiction titles appear here that may be exactly what you need. The Lost Man is an addictive rural thriller from Jane Harper. Normal People is an extraordinary intimate love story from Sally Rooney. And Milkman is a punchy tale of inaction with immense consequences from Anna Burns.
