The Blue Plateau Shortlisted for the PM’s and the Queensland Premier’s Literary Awards 2010

Published : Tuesday, August 17, 2010 | Label:

Following on its shortlisting for the Prime Minister’s Literary Award (see my other entry on that), The Blue Plateau has just been shortlisted for the Queensland Premier’s Literary Award (nonfiction), with four other books, including Krissy Kneen’s startling and lyrical memoir of addiction Affection and Brenda Walker’s elegant memoir of reading and recovery, Reading by Moonlight.

They announce the prize in Brisbane on 31 August.

I’m deligthed to see that Peter Boyle is shortlisted in poetry for his stunning Apocrypha. And in fiction, Stephen Lang is listed for his lovely novel 88 Lines About 44 Women, alongside Alex Miller (Lovesong), J M Coetzee (Summertime), Peter Carey (Parrot & Olivier in America), and Brian Castro (The Bath Fugues).
