The longlist:

Graham Freudenberg, Churchill and Australia

Mary-Rose MacColl, The Birth Wars
David Marr, The Henson Case
Iain McCalman, Darwin’s Armada

Text congratulates David, who can now stick November 9th in his diary. This is when the shortlist of three will be announced.

And that’s just a week after the winner of the Prime Minister’s Literary Awards will be announced—The Henson Case is shortlisted for the non-fiction prize.
