Description:

Carrots and Jaffas tells the story of two red-headed identical twins whose oneness is ruptured when one of them is kidnapped. Their startling intimacy is both a strength and a fault line in their being, and once separated, their individuality emerges. In the course of this exhilarating domestic tale set in Melbourne and the Flinders Ranges, the reader encounters the twins' parents - emotional, scripture-quoting Luisa and calm Bernard - as well as two remarkable storytellers, Doc, an eccentric outback doctor and Greta, an Aboriginal elder. Trauma is followed by recovery through the unexpected agency of story and 'country' (in the Australian Aboriginal meaning of that term).
Howard Goldenberg is a doctor, writer, marathon runner and Olympic torch bearer. He has written two non-fiction books, My Father's Compass (2007) and Raft (2009). This is his first novel.

Description:

Chaconne is the story of an apprenticeship - in life, love and early music - in which not the least of the obstacles standing in the way of Eleanor's becoming who she might be is Eleanor Weston herself. Against the Cold War craziness of the early 1980s, the novel traces, with wit as well as lyricism, a young Australian woman's failed pursuit of love with a bourgeois communist in Paris and her subsequent shift to the periphery of a US airbase in the Rhineland, where she stumbles into marriage with a seemingly harmless American. When Thomas, a successful harpsichordist and self-hating German, comes to the village to recuperate after a nervous collapse, he and Eleanor form a deep musical connection that not only sets her voice free but allows her to find, in the crisis that ensues, more nerve and resolve than she ever knew she had.

Praise for Cold Comfort
"What a great story. A believable world of snow and ice, and a tough, engaging protagonist. Vanja is a trader moving between isolated settlements, navigating the hazards of a harsh environment and sometimes prejudiced attitudes towards women as she searches for relics relating to the mysterious 'Builders'. This story has it all: ice spiders, snow bears, and terrific action sequences - immersive and beautifully paced. More! More! More!" - Ambelin Kwaymullina, author: The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf

Description:

"Colour Blind tells the story of two wars affecting Australia a hundred years ago: World War I that everyone knows about, and the lesser known one, the battles that past generations of Aboriginal Australians faced. Not the British Invasion, but the struggle more than a century later when Aboriginal men who were willing to serve alongside non-Aboriginal Australians, their mates, were not seen as worthy of doing so. And the battle for ordinary citizen rights - such as joining the local RSL, of all things - went on long after the war ended. Discrimination such as this, on top of the horrors of war, could easily make this book a depressing read. But what eclipses the negativity and meanness of the way our First Australians were treated is their loyalty, their mateship and their guts, making this book a most enjoyable read from cover to cover. This book reminds us all of their marvelous contributions to Australia - lest we forget. As an Aussie who is equally grateful for my non-Aboriginal and my Aboriginal ancestry, reading of the lows as well as the highs of this nation's history gives me a better appreciation of what my Aboriginal forebears endured - and, more essentially, how they triumphed. Mr Willmott, I now eagerly await for the next book in this series." - Dr. Anthony Dillon, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, MTrainDev, Mpsych (Clin), BSc(Hons), PhD
 
"Australian Aboriginals fighting a war for a country that didn't recognise them. Educating and entertaining are the two words I would use to describe the latesd book Colour Blind by GS Willmott. Mr Willmott has the knack to deliver interesting information about the battles of World War I as well as getting you involved in the human side of it. I enjoyed travelling on the journeys of our diggers and learning just how difficult it was for the indigenous people of Australia to not just fight but to enlist to fight for our country and get the recognition for their efforts that they so rightly deserved." - Kim Krarup, preview reader
 
"Thank you for sending Colour Blind to me. Michael Bell our Indigenous Liaison Officer from our Military History Section read the book for me and did indicate that he is supportive of the story of Colour Blind." - Dr Brendon Nelson, Director Australian War Memorial
 
"If you like your novels laced with a good dose of historical information and peopled with engaging characters who sound and behave like people of their time, you'll enjoy Colour Blind by Garry Willmott. Colour Blind follows several young men on their momentous journey through the Great War. There are horrors and discomforts galore, but the khaki-clad boys get by with courage, quips and a solid culture of mateship. We follow them every step of the way through the gruelling war years, and through the immediate aftermath. What makes Colour Blind unique in my reading is the inclusion of some indigenous boys who just want to do their bit like their mates. The difficulties they face are all down to red tape and the peculiar laws that deny them equal rights. Once they join up, they more than prove their mettle. So if courage and mateship and the quintessential true-blue character is your preference, read Colour Blind. If it doesn't bring a glow of equal parts indignation and pride to your heard... well you know what I mean." - Sally Odgers, author

Description:

At a time when Australians are wavering in support of a proposed US-led invasion of Iraq, more than six hundred US Marines rotating on R & R in Bali suddenly disappear; then, Kuta erupts in a fireball and Australia falls into line with America's demand to become part of the 'Coalition of the Willing'.
Based on indisputable fact, a step by step account of the Bali bombers, the rise of extremist Islamic militancy across Asia and what the future might hold when terror is unleashed on Australia's doorstep, 'Crescent Moon Rising' relates the rise of militant Islam across Asia and how the US and other foreign intelligence agencies missed opportunities to arrest not only the instigators of the September 11 attacks on the USA but also those who created the Jemaah Islamiyah and carried out the Bali bombings. The Bojinka Plot is uncovered in Manila but the US ridicules the contents found on a white Toshiba laptop discovered after an apartment fire. The computer files lay out an assassination plot against the Pope who would visit that week, and the detailed plan to hijack 11 aircraft and crash these into the World Trade Towers and other US targets. The timing of this event was January 1995.

Description:

Set in wintry Tasmania in the early 1990s, with flashbacks to post-war Hobart and Europe during World War II, this story deals with dark secrets, crime and Nazi plots, interwoven with familiar domestic tensions of family life and marriage. Tully creates a fictional world strongly embedded in authentic details of real locations and well-conceived characters.
The earthy, passionate main protagonist, Jack Martin, is richly drawn: 'A typical copper - detective anyway - stressed out most of the time, running on adrenaline, nicotine and coffee. Booze too, but not as much as some of his mates. Running to flab from a diet of meat pipes and sauce, chips and the deep-fried dog's turds they called chicken rolls, gobbled down on the run between cases, ingesting cumulatively lethal doses of salt, sugar and saturated fats.'
In this elaborate web of intrigue the ground shifts, the past intrudes and time and place are vividly realised.
Brooding violence, tangled mysteries... a gripping read.
