We are incredibly thrilled to announce that the 2020 Dymocks Book of the Year is Honeybee by Craig Silvey.
 


Honeybee is nothing short of a Great Australian Novel. It has unforgettable characters, a depth of emotion that plummets and soars, and a beautifully told story that will make you feel richer for having read it. Our booksellers know a true classic when they read one, and their overwhelming response to Honeybee speaks for itself, as it received more votes than any other book for the award. We want to congratulate author Craig Silvey, who is an incredibly talented Australian storyteller and worthy winner of our Book of the Year. 
 

'My sincere gratitude to Dymocks Books... for their continued support and advocacy for Australian authors and their stories.'


Readers are likely familiar with Silvey's previous and highly awarded novel, Jasper Jones, a book that has been voted into our TOP 101 by our Booklovers year upon year. 

 

Above: Silvey on Honeybee and what winning the Book of the Year means to him.


Upon winning the award, Silvey said, 'I’m thrilled and deeply honoured that Honeybee has been awarded Dymocks Book of the Year, particularly given the calibre and talent possessed by the shortlisted writers. My sincere gratitude to Dymocks Books - not only for their belief in Honeybee, but for their continued support and advocacy for Australian authors and their stories.'


Honeybee joins our previous winners, Boy Swallows Universe and Where the Crawdads Sing, books that have been loved and read widely by our Booklovers since being voted by our staff as their favourites. In a year that had us reading more than ever, find out why our well-read people chose Honeybee as their No.1 read of 2020.

'From the very opening of Craig Silvey's Honeybee, I knew I was reading an absolute modern classic. I am so glad that this wonderful book will get into the hands of many people as it is life-affirmingly wonderful and moving.' - Ally, Dymocks Doncaster


'Silvey sweeps you off your feet right from page one and just carries you along in his characters' journey of self-discovery. This is one of those rare novels that just stays with you as something truly special, long after putting it down.' - James, Dymocks Knox City


'Craig Silvey has written another Australian classic. Honeybee is exhilarating and profound, and a book that is going to be devoured and adored for decades to come, reaffirming the immense talent that is Craig Silvey.' - Jon, Dymocks Sydney
