Jane Doh... It posted mid sentence...! I can't recall the Australian title or author, but it looks more interesting than the others. Has anyone else read any of the short list?

Julie (julzstokes) | 6 comments I've read both We Are Completely Beside Ourselves and The Wake this year. The lady who runs the book club that I belong to chose We Are Completely Beside Ourselves as the book of the month for May - I found it a little strange and convoluted. I picked the Wake myself to read and really enjoyed it - pity it didn't make the shortlist though.
