Anna and Annie discuss the Australian Book Industry Awards, mostly won by Boy Swallows Universe by Trent Dalton, and the Best Young Australian Novelists according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
Our book of the week is Gingerbread by Helen Oyeyemi. Annie is a fan of this Nigerian-born British author, whom Ali Smith calls 'a writer of sentences so elegant they gleam.' Gingerbread has been described as 'exhilarating' (New York Times Book Review), 'mind-bending' (Washington Post) and 'wildly inventive' (Vogue). But how will Anna cope with all the magic?
Next week, Anna and Amanda will be reading At Dusk by Hwang Sok-yong, translated by Sora Kim-Russell.
