As a long time fan of Murnane’s writing, I was pleased to read in the AGE today that he’d won the Melbourne Prize for Literature. His new novel, The Barley Patch, now heads my wishlist, or it would if it was listed on Amazon. For anyone yet to discover the strange and beautiful world of Murnane, you’re in for a treat.
