    Smoke

    Miriel Lenore

    Welcome to the Victorian town of Boort, where poet Miriel Lenore spent her childhood. With characteristic humour and compassion, Lenore has created a series of vivid and moving portraits of Australian rural life in the 1930s. As a child, and as a returning adult, she observes the weaving together of individual lives, the unravelling that comes with war and tragedy, and the pragmatism and everyday reality of country life. Miriel Lenore's voice is clear, forthright and transparent, and her use of form flexible and persuasive. ...

    This Excellent Machine

    Stephen Orr

    Clem Whelan's got a problem: trapped in the suburbs in the Sunnyboy summer of 1984 he has to decide what to do with his life. Matriculation? He's more than able, but not remotely interested. Become a writer? His failed lawyer neighbour Peter encourages him, but maybe it's just another dead end? To make sense of the world, Clem uses his telescope to spy on his neighbours. From his wall, John Lennon gives him advice; his sister (busy with her Feres Trabilsie hairdressing apprenticeship) tells him he's a pervert; his best friend, Curtis, gets hooked on sex and Dante and, as the year progresses and the essays go unwritten, he starts to understand the excellence of it all.

    His Pop, facing the first dawn of dementia, determined to follow an old map into the desert in search of Lasseter's Reef. His old neighbour, Vicky, returning to Lanark Avenue - and a smile is all it takes. Followed by a series of failed driving tests; and the man at his door, claiming to be his father. ...

    Silliness

    A serious history

    Peter Timms

    Silliness is to be savoured. It exposes the cracks in our reasoning, raising a gleeful two-finger salute to convention and common sense. In a world awash with stupidity and cruel politics, silliness is childish, anarchic, mischievous, rude and sometimes shocking.

    Boomer and Me

    A memoir of motherhood, and Asperger's

    Between juggling work, joint custody and the ordinary demands of motherhood, Jo tries to work out why her son Leo (aka Boomer) is finding it hard to fit in. His wit wins him friends, but the rituals of friendship - like learning to compromise - are proving challenging. Is it because he's an only child? Could he be gifted?

    When Leo is diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, Jo fears what it means - and sees herself, and her family, through new eyes. Trapped in a cycle of doubt and discovery, she wonders how you can stay true to who you are and fit in. What the hell is 'normal' anyway?
