The shortlist for this year's Miles Franklin Literary Award has been announced and all titles are in stock now at Pages & Pages. Who do you think will win this year's prize?


This is one of those books that immediately after you start reading you know you are in the hands of a wonderful writer. Atticus Lish has delivered a delicately savage critique on post-9/11 America and the so-called American Dream in a beautiful love story of an illegal immigrant and an American soldier recently returned from Iraq. This is a novel that permeates through you, long after you finish it and is a truly exception debut.  Jon & Chris

This is a fun romp through ancient Rome. Julius is a young Zebra, minding his own business, eating grass, dealing with his annoying younger brother when he is captured by a legionnaire and taken back to Rome to fight in the arena. This is just the start of his adventure ! Fast paced, funny and they won't even know they are learning something. Ian
