We have a list of essential reading out this August — stellar Australian and translated fiction, and inspiring nonfiction to get you through the last snap of winter.
Australian author Kate Ryan’s stunning debut novel The Golden Book is a beautifully written look at love, memory, and female relationships; Fox and I is Catherine Raven’s inspiring, moving, surprising, and often funny memoir about the transformative power of her unusual friendship with a wild fox; The Orchard Murders is the fourth novel in Robert Gott’s acclaimed Murders series, set in Melbourne during the dark days of the Second World War; In God Save the Queen Dennis Altman, a celebrated academic and avowed republican, investigates the unexpected durability and potential benefits of constitutional monarchies; and The Liquid Land is a brooding literary novel by Viennese author Raphaela Edelbauer that takes readers through a glittering and strange nightmare.
