Blackbirders by Dorothy B Hughes

Brilliant noir fiction by one of the best but often forgotten authors, Dorothy B Hughes. There were so many plot twists and turns I was riveted. Who is the gray man -innocent traveller, Gestapo, FBI or none of these things. Is  he really a danger to the equally mysterious protagonist Julliet, on the run from being a potential suspect in a murder. Moving from New York to Santa Fe and set during World War II and full of men in hats lurking in bars and street corners, train journeys taken by…

Free Food for Millionaires by Min Jin Lee

When I finished reading Pachinko and couldn’t recover from my book hangover, I knew Min Jin Lee’s debut novel was the answer to my literary woes. Free Food for Millionaires, released ten years before the hugely successful Pachinko, tells the story of first-generation Korean-American Casey Han and the wide cast of characters who inhabit her world. She has just graduated from Princeton with expensive tastes in clothing (and the credit card debt to match) and no clear direction in life. We watch,…Continue

Prairie Fires: the American dreams of Laura Ingalls Wilder by Caroline Fraser

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize,  this is a comprehensive biography of the iconic writer Laura Ingalls Wilder of 'Little House on the Prairie' fame amongst many other titles. Her stories  of a simple, happy but sometimes hard and cruel life on the prairies as a child and then with her husband are some of the most popular in American literature, up there with 'Little Women'. I found the first section very interesting as it went through the violent and fraught years for the Indigenous population,…Continue

Mister Pip / by Lloyd Jones

One of the best things about reading this fine book was my ability to complete it while here at the Byron Bay Writer's Festival, a celebration of quality literature and authors.  I might add it was a double pleasure after attending the dismal, depressing APLIC conference at Gold Coast last week where I had the unusual experience of sharing a large convention hall of "librarians" who had nothing to say about books.But on to the story at hand.  Matilda is the single child of Delores, a woman…Continue
