Truth wins the Miles Franklin Award

Peter Temple’s compelling novel Truth has won the 2010 Miles Franklin Literary Award.

Peter is the first crime writer to win Australia’s most lauded literary award. This is not just a first for Australia, but the first time a crime writer has won a major national literary prize for a novel in English.

Truth is a novel about murder, corruption, family, friends, honour, deceit, love, betrayal. And truth.

It is also the gripping sequel to The Broken Shore, which won the world’s richest and most prestigious crime-writing prize, the Crime Writers’ Association Gold Dagger in 2007.

Congratulations Peter from everyone at Text.
