Vicki Laveau-Harvie’s Stella Prize-winning memoir, The Erratics, continues its run as our bestselling book of the week. This is a phenomenal response to the debut author’s memoir – a sharp, darkly funny and poignant account on the legacy of family.

Once again, we’re proud to see such a diverse and complex range of fiction and non-fiction texts on the list. Maxine Beneba Clarke’s Growing Up African in Australia is a powerful anthology featuring the engaging and moving stories of African-diaspora Australians. Other bestsellers from the week include Bruce Pascoe’s Dark Emu, Richard Powers' Pulitzer Prize-winning The Overstory, Sally Rooney’s Conversations with Friends and Stan Grant’s Australia Day. Grant will be discussing his new book at the Melbourne Athenaeum on Wednesday 15 May – get tickets here.

We’re also happy to see Ian McEwan’s new book, Machines Like Me – a subversive and provocative new novel posing questions on the nature of humanity – resonating with readers.
