Peter Temple wins major Australian Literary Award

South African born Peter Temple is one of my favourite crime writers. TRUTH – his most recent books is complex, challenging and original. I very pleased to see he won this award – first won by Patrick White for Voss, another of my favourite books. And great to see that crime books are filtering through into the so-called literary world. Temple gives a wonderful insight into Australian society. Try his BROKEN SHORE – another great book. Here’s the story: SA-born crime writer wins book award.
