The Australian Crime Writers Association celebrate the best in Australian crime writing with the presentation of the Ned Kelly Awards. This years categories are Best Fiction, Best First Fiction, True Crime and the Sandra Harvey Short Story Award. Here are my predictions (sorry haven’t read any of the short stories so will not attempt to guess here) .
Best Fiction – Barry Maitland’s Crucifixion Creek (I aim to read this in the next week, stay tuned)
Best First Fiction – Anna George’s What Came Before (as you might already know this is one of my very favourite books – ever)
True Crime – Helen Garner’s This House of Grief: The Story of a Murder Trial
Who do you think will win?
