A story about surfing, a seaside town and the people who live there

A story about the Billymil family of Darnmoor
Simpson skilfully weaves in Dreaming and demonstrates the connection between the present and past through ancestral stories and care for nature.
A story about a mother and her imprisoned son
The Labyrinth is just the kind of novel we need now: sharp-edged but ultimately hopeful about our ability to survive the disasters that befall us.
A story about friendship and music
one of the pleasures of O’Hagan’s writing is that he gives the gravity and the absurdity of youth equal weight.
A story about siblings and family memories
Humorous, insightful, and ultimately affecting, State Highway One unpicks the uneasy nature of family and the difficulty of escaping your past
