The Miles Franklin Literary Award was established through the will of My Brilliant Career author, Miles Franklin. The prize is awarded each year to a novel which is of the highest literary merit and presents Australian life in any of its phases.
Here is the longlist:
The river is a place of history and secrets. For Ren and Sonny, two unlikely friends, it's a place of freedom and adventure. For a group of storytelling vagrants, it's a refuge. And for the isolated daughter of a cult reverend, it's an escape.
Each time they visit, another secret slips into its ancient waters. But change and trouble are coming – to the river and to the lives of those who love it. Who will have the courage to fight and survive and what will be the cost? Buy the book here.
