MILES FRANKLIN LITERARY AWARD 2019

TOO MUCH LIP by Melissa Lucashenko
Kerry Salter, a feisty Bundjalung woman who vowed never to go back to her home town, has returned because her Pop is dying. It means the rest of her dysfunctional family is also there, and that means trouble. Add the redneck mayor who has plans for the Salter clan's special place by the river, a real estate agent hiding from her past in plain sight, a fine-looking whitefella love interest and a host of other problems, and you have a darkly humorous tale that doesn't shy away from hard truths about generational trauma and poverty, but is also full of resilience, survival and not giving in. Lindy Jones, Miles Franklin Literary Award judge
