Gathering Sticks 
Margaret Heffernan with Frances Coughlan and Gerard Waterford

A life in transition from traditional culture to a very different world, this new release from IAD Press in Alice Springs is a memoir that looks forward, as well as back. 

 

Between Us
Clare Atkins

From the award-winning author of Nona & Me comes a stunning novel about two teenagers separated by cultural differences, their parents’ expectations, and 20 kilometres of barbed-wire fence.
 
 
A Song Only I Can Hear
Barry Jonsberg
 
Rob has a huge crush on the new girl at school, but is painfully shy and suffers severe panic attacks. How is her heart to be won? Another wonderful and heart-warming comedy drama from the award-winning author of My Life as an Alphabet.
 
 
Capriccio
Dina Davis
 
Inspired by the life of Assia Gutmann Wevill, the “other woman” who came between poets Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath, this version of the story aims to restore Wevill to her place as a woman in her own right who changed the course of literary history.
 
 
Rain Birds
Harriet McKnight
 
Rain Birds is a powerful and lyrical novel about love, grief and loss, one that examines personal tragedy as set against global and environmental responsibilities, and how we negotiate our often-conflicting ideals. This novel is this year's top pick from Off The Shelf reviewer Kate Rendell.
