The Miles Franklin Literary Award

The Miles Franklin award was set up under the terms of the will of the late Stella Maria Sarah Miles Franklin, the famed Australian author who died in September 1954. It is given annually for the novel or play of the highest literary merit, presenting aspects of Australian life, and published during the preceding year. The Miles Franklin Literary Award not only rewards Australian authors but, as Frank Moorhouse said in his winner's acceptance speech on 5 June 2001, it also 'honours the great art of story telling.'

Booklovinglady I've read 6 and 12 more are on my to read list. Not bad for a non-Aussie, I'd say :-)

Addition:
I just voted for more books which were now on the list (and weren't before).


message 2: by Alex (new)

Alex Marsden I wish this list just consisted of the winners and not books that were shortlisted or long listed. There are other lists for those categories.
