The winner of Miles Franklin Award

Well, I wanted to be able to tell you at the first instance, but it’s not. Still hopefully it’s not too late to let you know that this years Miles Franklin Literary award goes to Peter Temple for his novel ‘Truth‘. It’s the first time, since 1957, the award started, that the nation’s most prestigious literary award goes to a crime writer.

Congratulations to the author. Truth is a story about murder, corruption, family, friends, honour, honesty, deceit, love, betrayal - and truth. A stunning story about contemporary Australian life, Truth is written with great moral sophistication.
