The Miles Franklin Literary Award, which was announced in Sydney on 22 June, was won by Peter Temple for his novel Truth. He receives $42,000 in prize money.
‘Temple’s winning novel is the much anticipated sequel to The Broken Shore and comprehends murder, corruption, family, friends, honour, honesty, deceit, love, betrayal – and truth. A stunning story about contemporary Australian life, Truth is written with great moral sophistication.’
