Ten great Australian beach reads set at the beach

Back in December, as I was preparing for a brief island holiday, I managed to sneak in this article for The Conversation, called ‘Ten great Australian beach reads set at the beach‘. While it is by no means a definitive list, it certainly includes some that I think are really significant beach books but also ones that showcase some of the diversity of beach writing in Australia.

The piece was republished elsewhere, including in The Guardian, and was a good inspiration to crack down on the manuscript for the upcoming edited book I’m working on (with my co-editor Donna Brien) called Writing the Australian Beach: global site, local idea.
