The nominees are:
- ‘The White Girl’ by Tony Birch (The University of Queensland Press)

As you can see I have already read a couple. I read No One on the weekend (it’s excellent), so plan on reviewing that very soon. The rest, bar Islands, are already on my TBR, so I hope to review them in due course before the prize announcement. Do keep coming back to this post as I will update the hyperlinks above as and when I review each title.
The winner of the $60,000 prize will be named on 16 July.
