New fiction and non-fiction books launched in early October 2020

New Fiction in Australia 2020
Edited by Rebecca Starford, Kill Your Darlings, $ 24.95


The short story of Australia is so new that the epidemic enters its fringe, and if a coronavirus is present or not, the aura of adversity clings to many of the contents.

In Miranda Riwoe’s So Many Ways, a caterer concerned about sudden abortion is fired while Chinese Chinese restaurants are being forced to close. The Rees’ Among the Ruins have seen the developer move to a brighter area, the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone for encouragement.

And the most powerful story, Laura Stortenbeker’s Low Light, is flying away from the unexpected – her idea may not be uncommon in competitive business – to be in a clear relationship between two young blokes. There are disappointments. The recordings are not as complex, artistic, and intellectual as the Stortenbeker, but in a short period of time in Australian broadcasting, the volume has its thumb.

Living with one wife
Sue Miller, Bloomsbury, $ 29.99


This beautiful book takes us to the families of writers. Graham, who owns a bookstore and his wife, Annie, has been happily married for many years, with a daughter, Sarah, and a daughter-in-law, Lucas, from Graham’s family. After Graham’s death, his family focused on the greatest man who ever lived – no more searching than Annie, who was skeptical and self-doubting talent always seemed incomprehensible to a man who was so simple, dependable and fun-loving to touch anyone he met. We have a picture of a romantic wedding that you did not bring for free to Annie, who is facing the opportunity to try to be alone to let her go. Monogamy is a question of peace and simplicity of marriage, sorrow and art.

Who Has It
Guillermo del Toro & Chuck Hogan, Del Rey, $ 32.99

The Hollow Ones is dense with action and decorative elements, the mask when it comes to the depth of character and form. It seems to have been written with the change of mindset in mind, and one of the authors and mastermind of Oscar-Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water), is quite clear. The book confuses the natural fears and myths of the police. FBI agent Odessa Hardwicke kills several people, but to kill his friend after he tried to kill a girl. He believes the demonic presence was with a friend, and after being suspended, Odessa is advised by Earl Solomon – the first black police officer in the Bureau – on how to hunt down the demon that did. Although they may seem dangerous, they are often the culprits of cookies, which have strong relationships and confidential ideas.

Book of Two Ways
Jodi Picoult, Allen & Unwin, $ 32.99

Bestseller Jodi Picoult fails to direct his material in The Book of Two Ways. Dawn, an Egyptology student, changed her life completely after her mother’s death, leaving her to care for her 13-year-old brother. Dawn became pregnant, married to a Harvard scientist, and left archaeologists to become a paramedic. Her grievances begin to manifest years later, when her son is young: an old flame, and the spirit of his workmate. The book answers the eternal questions of life, death, and love, but both the movement and its reliability come as a result of the author’s inability to control himself. Picoult cannot deny the details of the loss of any final product and his research. The result is exhausting and extreme, and the story mourns the weight of its heads.


More than a Wife
Caitlin Moran, Ebury Press, $ 32.99

The daily 40-year-old visit of a mother of two can be described as the mid-year life of Bridget Jones’s Diary. But there is more to it than that. British journalist Caitlin Moran thinks for a moment in her life that it is funny, obvious, ugly and ugly – whether it’s exposing her naked body in a bathroom mirror (feeling good), spending time with her husband, raising, dealing with her parents’ divorce or bring a dead mouse under the refrigerator. But chatter style ends when she has a serious eating disorder of her daughter. After the sale of How to Be a Wife, this is about a number of demands on being a mother, a wife, a writer and being alone. Along the way she writes about a happy family and her husband’s contributions.

At Our Home
Craig Collie, Allen & Unwin, $ 32.99

Japanese lightning strikes across the Malay Peninsula, the fall of Singapore and their arrival in New Guinea is a well-known story. But it’s amazing and exciting with Craig Collie, who can often be wry. The British and Australians have always ridiculed the Japanese, especially appearing in the Singapore leadership – Gordon Bennett the great Australian fleeing as a sampan.


It’s a western affair and arrogant, but at a time when the Japanese were bombing Darwin we grew up. Fear of kidnapping had spread throughout the country and, as Admiral Tojo had foretold after the war, the kidnapping in Australia was not planned. Collie weighs all the evidence and comes to the same conclusion.

Second Good
Ben Pobjie, Affirm Press, $ 32.99

Somerset Maugham said the final reading would be the same in front of those who would be re-signing them. Ben Pobjie did not mention Maugham in this joke dedicated to the runners, but takes a long line away from them – from Second Fleet (a disaster sold to a slave company), Buzz Aldrin following Neil Footsteps of Armstrong, Belka and Strelka, second dogs in the air) to Prime Our second minister, Alfred Deakin.

Perhaps of even greater interest is the story of the British scientist Rosalind Franklin – who died after James Watson, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins received the Nobel Prize for helix DNA – but their pioneering work paid off. This is an interesting story in Bad History.
