Australian writers pick the best books of 2014

I had zero expectations of finding When We Have Wings on this list, as it was published in 2011. So many thanks to Lisa Jacobson for not only choosing the book as her highlight of the year but for going against the trend that sees books having a shorter shelf life than yogurt.

‘Highlight of the year: Claire Corbett’s speculative novel, When We Have Wings (Allen & Unwin), which somehow flew under the literary radar despite its 2012 shortlistings. Corbett creates a dazzling world where the wealthy soar on lavish wings while those less fortunate dwell wingless below.’ – Lisa Jacobson
