A Royal Murder - ebook: pdf

A Rebecca Keith mystery

Sandra Winter-Dewhirst

The duffle bag appeared to be made from expensive silk, embossed with what Rebecca thought was Chinese calligraphy. She was in no doubt that the bag contained a body. The protruding bloodied leg was a giveaway.

A Very Normal Man

Vincenzo Cerami, Isobel Grave

A Very Normal Man is the first English translation of Vincenzo Cerami's first and most famous novel, Un borghese piccolo piccolo. The complex word play of the Italian title is untranslatable in English; it means literally a very little, very middle-class man. Little he may be, but Giovanni Vivaldi, to paraphrase Italo Calvino's words, is a victim who is also a monster. This is a revenge story whose protagonist tortures his enemy with the same attention to detail he'd apply to the files he's slogged over for half a lifetime in the office for pensions. And with the same detachment. ...

A Wild Kind of Tune

Miriel Lenore

The title of this poetry narrative - A Wild Kind of Tune - captures perfectly the imaginative journey into the poignant psycho-geography of Miriel Lenore's maternal great-grandmother, Caroline. In a wild tale arcing from 1845 to the present, in poetry underpinned by meticulous research, we inhabit settler society with all its attendant joys, hardship and grief as we careen with Caroline through her journey of love, loss and horror into madness.

The histories of West Lakes

Susan Marsden

West Lakes in South Australia was created in the 1970s, transforming what many considered a wasteland of swamp and sand into well-groomed waterways and suburbs. Who carried out this vast engineering and urban project? Were perceptions of the area consistent with reality, before and after the signing of the West Lakes Indenture in 1969? Susan Marsden's history covers an extensive and environmentally complex region, now a large swathe of western metropolitan Adelaide. ...

Adelaide Festival 60 Years

1960-2020

Catherine McKinnon

The Adelaide Festival is as much shaped by people and place as it in turn shapes people and place; its identity is a weird and wild shifting thing. It is not owned by one individual, but belongs to everyone.

Adelaide Festival 60 Years is an astounding cacophony of images and tales that revel in the life of the Festival since its founding in 1960 - remembering what it was, anticipating what it might be. ...
