"Emily Bitto’s writing is fearless, lyrical and powerfully evocative. She has once again produced an electric novel that makes us question the notion of capitalism, toxic masculinity, loneliness, and our responsibility towards the wilderness. Genius storytelling – it’s Sweet Bitter meets Into the Wild meets Tiger King!"
Tim, Dymocks Brand & Content Manager
"It is a gift to have one last complete novel from John le Carré after his passing last year. Silverview has all you could want in a final outing from the master of the spy thriller that begins in a bookshop, and is no doubt asking to be adapted for screen."

"You won’t believe this novel is a debut! Diana Reid is one of the most exciting new voices to emerge this year - from Australia or anywhere - so you really shouldn’t miss this fiercely intelligent, beautifully written and affecting campus novel. I can’t wait to see what she writes next!"

"It’s been seven years since we were treated to the splendour of All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, and any hesitancies I may have had, wondering if Cloud Cuckoo Land would remotely be as good, were dispelled by the end of the first chapter. The book is set in three distinct time frames, the past in 1453, the present, and decades in the future. It follows a wonderful cast of characters, and the way their stories are connected, as well as the story that connects them, is a myth completely invented by Anthony Doerr himself. This book stopped me in my tracks as I was not prepared for the ending and it also made me ponder the past, present and future with a new perspective. Readers are going to be in for a treat with this book!"

"Chris Hammer takes us with Detective Sergeant Ivan Lucic to the flies, heat and dust of Finnigan’s Gap, to investigate the death of an opal miner in this small remote community. What unfolds over the next week will keep you enthralled and engaged as a great cast of characters, including billionaires and cult figures, are all involved in mystery, scheming and intrigue. There are many secrets that won’t remain buried."

"Well Hello is a love letter to Annabel Crabb and Leigh Sales’ podcast and its legion of fans. Together, they build on their podcast to discuss books, movies, cooking, and everything else. It is a reminder that we are a part of something bigger than ourselves, particularly during the last 18 months when everyone has been so isolated. Annabel and Leigh continue their light-hearted take on the world and share their experiences in something tangible for us to hold and go back to, when the need arises. This is their podcast given new life and it will win many more fans to this dynamic duo with their hilarious world views."
