February New Books

2024 being a leap year, there’s an extra day in February. Why not spend it reading a good book? One of these, perhaps…

The Good Dog       
by Simon Rowell

In this thrilling police procedural set in Mount Macedon, Detective Sergeant Zoe Mayer and her service dog Harry are back and facing their toughest challenge yet. Perfect for fans of Garry Disher, Chris Hammer and JP Pomare.

‘A whip-smart read with a whole lot of heart. Harry the dog may well be my favourite character in crime fiction today.’ Loraine Peck, Ned Kelly Awards-winning author of The Second Son


by Sharon Kernot

An exquisite Young-Adult verse novel that delves into the pain of loss and shame, and the healing balm of friendship, from the highly acclaimed author of The Art of Taxidermy.

Birdy is a beautifully written story about how poetry, friendship and nature can help us acknowledge and navigate the histories that haunt us. I was spellbound by Kernot’s gorgeous, lyrical writing from start to finish. A unique and powerful book.’ Carly Nugent, author of The Peacock Detectives and Sugar


The Singularity      
by Balsam Karam
Translated by Saskia Vogel

An immersive, breathtaking novel, The Singularity is a study of grief, class, migration and motherhood, from one of Sweden’s most exciting new novelists.

‘I don’t know anyone who writes like Balsam Karam. She blows me away. Truly one of the most original and extraordinary voices to come out of Scandinavia in…forever.’ Fredrick Backman, author of A Man Called Ove

‘A timeless work of art; it will be praised for years to come.’ Pirooz Jafari, author of Forty Nights
