Just back from Byron and it turns out that there are, in fact, five books on the shortlist for the Aurealis Award for best Young Adult book of the year. (Thanks for the heads up, Mr Ben Payne.) The missing title was Isobel Carmody’s Alyzon Whitestar. Can’t wait to read both Alyzon and Anthony Eaton’s Nightpeople.
Byron Bay was beautamous and excellent. More when not knackered.
