Miles Franklin Shortlist announced—Congratulations Peter Temple

Peter Temple’s stunning novel Truth has been shortlisted for the 2010 Miles Franklin Literary Award.

This recognition for Truth proves Peter Temple to be not only one of Australia’s leading crime writers but one of Australia’s leading writers, full stop.

Here is some of what the judges had to say: ‘Few contemporary fiction writers grasp the speech and silences of the Australian vernacular as effectively as Temple…Truth is a stunning novel about contemporary Australian life, written with all the ambiguity and moral sophistication of the most memorable literature.’ Read more here.

Congratulations Peter from everyone at Text.
