Your guide to the Miles Franklin shortlist

A kaleidoscopic portrait of a diverse nation

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle

Abstract

The Miles Franklin award is famously for “a novel which is of the highest literary merit and presents Australian life in any of its phases”. That’s a very broad palette, yet for most of the award’s existence — 1957 to the present — it has recognised a rather narrow field of “Australian life”.
