TRENT DALTON RETURNS

Trent Dalton, bestselling author of Boy Swallows Universe, returns with All Our Shimmering Skies - a glorious novel destined to become another Australian classic. Shipping Australia-wide & international.

"Dalton's tumbling prose is colourful, almost breathless, his characters are marvellously observed and his storytelling - well, it's a great delight indeed!" Lindy Jones

NEW ELENA FERRANTE

My Brilliant Friend was a publishing sensation and a gift to readers worldwide. The Lying Life of Adults is the new novel from the author of the hugely popular Neapolitan Quartet.

"Two years before leaving home, my father said to my mother that I was very ugly."

Giovanna's pretty face has changed: it's turning into the face of an ugly, spiteful adolescent. But is she seeing things as they really are? Into which mirror must she look to find herself and save herself?

SUB-CATEGORIES: FICTION & LITERATURE



An intensely moving celebration of male friendship

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- This is undoubtedly one of my favourite books of the year - it's joyous and heartrending and funny and compassionate - and it even made me appreciate lads being lads!

James has little in the way of family life, and spends his time outside of school hanging around with friends, particularly the charismatic and lively Tully, who is a couple of years older. Tully is the centre of everything in his circle, but like most of the young men in their working class Scottish town, has followed his father into factory work - which in 1986 in Thatcher's Britain is increasingly threatened. When Tully, James and a number of other friends decide to go to Manchester for a weekend music festival, it is to be the highlight of their youth; but also the moment when their friendships will change and their futures deviate from the expected paths. All of which is shown, when the later part of the novel unfolds, when decades later James gets a phone call from Tully that he has been expecting - and dreading.

An intensely moving celebration of male friendship in a society which places great value on mateship but not on men's emotions, and how anything is possible if your friends are there... Lindy Jones

A road trip through New Zealand like no other

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- This was one of my favourite reads during the disquiet of early COVID19 and it stayed with me a while (the story, not the virus).

Coley's writing crackles with a youthfulness as it launches into a road trip running the full extent of New Zealand, for which twin siblings Alex and Amy seem strangely ill-prepared. Along the way we glimpse into their strained relationship and their memories as children of successful, but often absent globetrotting parents. We also piece together Alex's life away from his home country of New Zealand, now working and playing hard in the information economy in the shimmering mirage of Dubai. A young man, far from home, finding his way through sexual self-discovery and self-exile from his family.

As the kilometres rack up, so do the glitches that tell us all is not as it appears. A poignant and resonant story that will entrance many. Craig Kirchner

Mum on the Run

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- 'Strong Mum on the run' is a genre that Kate Mildenhall's novel nails. Mim's husband, working offshore in Indonesia on a mining project, goes missing and when The Department comes around asking questions, Mim realises that she and her children are no longer safe.

Set in Australia-not-too-distant (no flying cars but everyone is 'chipped' - think of a mini 'Australia Card' embedded in your palm), this novel taps into the 'Big Brother' surveillance concerns we face as a society. I used to be fairly relaxed about this, buying the 'if you're not doing anything wrong' line, but recent news of Australian business and home security cameras hacked and streaming their vision on Russian websites to anyone in the world is alarming. And of facial recognition software being rolled out in the cities of China and elsewhere - increasingly we are being buttoned down tightly. Chip implants to follow!

There are some big ideas here but this isn't only about future tech and political possibilities, it's also about Mim and how this new threat affects her self-image as Mum, wife, daughter, sister, stirring something more primal, more self-contained as she faces each new challenge. Craig Kirchner

All consuming...

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- The most confounding thing in this story is also the most compelling - the idea that by some strange mutation to human physiology, people are able to 'eat' by watching film footage. I know!

The planet has undergone some all encompassing catastrophe that has rendered all plant and animal food sources, and even the rain, contaminated.

Now you might be thinking that reading something like this is not what you want to be doing during a global pandemic. On the contrary, I found it to be wonderfully escapist, reading how the leaders of the New Time managed the populace through spin and agenda. Allington has created a really interesting cast of characters coping with change and rebellion. Solidarity through literature! Craig Kirchner

P.S. In his acknowledgments Allington references the cover image: "The cover of Rise & Shine features Hilma af Klint's painting Group IX/SUW, The Swan, No. 17 which she painted in 1915 in Sweden". I mention this only because, with its play of the positive, negative and complementary within the whole, it too is strangely compelling.

What is love? Part II

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Following on from reading Victoria Hannan's KOKOMO where love is a slippery concept, Luke Horton's THE FOGGING was another bright spot in my reading, taking me inside a couple's relationship.

Clara & Tom are in Bali (remember holidays?) and Tom's battle with anxiety has resurfaced. Then the fogging happens. No - it's not a swing into horror. The fogging is the smoke/pesticide fumigation done on resort grounds and it provokes alarm in Clara & her new holiday friend Madeleine leading to relationship trouble between Tom & Clara. The reader is brought in close to Tom's viewpoint and the writing is so sure-footed - a pleasure to read. Craig Kirchner
