The awesome (literary) foursome
It’s great to see avid (but not uncritical) MWD reader Lisa Gorton on the PM’s Christmas reading list — her novel was equal winner of the Prime Minister’s Literary Awards for Fiction in 2016. Also it is interesting to note that Malcolm Turnbull will be reading the works of Sheila Fitzpatrick and Tim Wintonâ€ both of whom were rewarded in the 2016 Prime Minister’s Literary Awards for Non-Fiction as a co-winner and a shortlist-recipient, respectively. The judging panel of which was the awesome (literary) foursome of Gerard Henderson (chair), Peter Coleman, Ross Fitzgerald and Ida Lichter.
