Description:

'What you are thinking about me is right,' says I, 'and it's wonderful and beautiful, and if you make it ugly for me I'll hate you for the rest of my life!' So flopping down and turning my poor brave face to the wall ... I'm still glad I said that.
 
Raised in a Sydney family of successful older brothers and sisters, young Barbara Whitley is determined to find her own direction. Her choices are instinctive but not always wise in the cramped world of the 1930s - a degree in Classics that fitted her for no profession, bad choices in men, taking a flat on her own when she'd grown up in the warmth of a loving family, a thoughtless marriage choice. The War comes, and Barbara's struggle for selfhood is further constrained, not least by the birth of her daughter and the failure of her marriage. And yet, luck finally takes a hand, in the form of a handsome lieutenant on leave in Sydney.
 
With an Introduction by Garry Kinnane

Signs of a Struggle illustrates the creative journey, from working-class North East England to the current Queer-art scene of Sydney, through the eyes of award-winning artist Guy James Whitworth.

With dramatic backdrops including a troubled childhood, 80s London in the midst of the AIDS crisis, and activism for global transformation in the modern world, Signs of a Struggle takes the reader on an intimate, raucous and also poignant journey through survival, queerdom, creativity and inspiration unlike any other.

Description:

Perth in the 1950s. After being caught wearing his mother's yellow dress, young Victor had to hide any tendency towards gender inappropriate behaviour. But his interest in dancing and theatre (and mooning over Rudolph Nureyev on the telly) were bound to make the facade collapse at some point. Emerging sexuality and the sense of not being 'at home' in his body, let alone the world, ran alongside a search for meaning that brought him eventually to a spiritual awakening under the young guru Maharaji...
Part family tragedy, part existential comedy, The Boy in the Yellow Dress is a warts-and-all account of exile and the subsequent journey homewards that is less about finding a respectable place in the world than an intimate connection with the ultimate source of being.
If ever a memoir captured the Zeitgeist, it's this one... Wise, funny, surprising at every turn... More than a portrait of growing up gay, it chronicles the wild search for meaning of an entire generation.
Amanda Lohrey (2012 Patrick White Award Winner)

Description:

Walter Kovak - insurance worker, early forties, unhappily married, no children, memorably invisible - is the sole survivor of a devastating suburban train crash. But Walter has no memory of the tragedy.
One year on he starts to receive mysterious random warnings from strangers - warnings that could again save his life. And his memory of the fateful day begins to return.
Ashley Sievwright lives, works and writes in Melbourne. His first novel, The Shallow End, was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers' Prize Best First Book in 2009.
Reviews of The Shallow End:

'Both witty and easy to read... filled with moments of droll sagacity... evocative prose and cynical humour are Sievwright's strengths...' - Australian Book Review
