City News – report on Barbara Jefferis Award, Thursday March 22

Independent Sydney newspaper City News has run a story about the Barbara Jefferis Award by Georgia Fullerton, quoting me and Anna Funder.

I said “I think they’ve been quite bold in listing my book, especially as I’m the only debut writer on the list. I have no idea why a book with ideas and imagination should not also be recognised as possessing literary craft but I can only hope that prejudice is beginning to fade”.
