Sarah Waters new novel, The Paying Guests, is just out. It’s set in London in the early 1920s, where the vividness of war has faded but the world has not yet been revitalised. Alena Graedon’s novel, The Word Exchange, looks to a future where technology has taken over; while Inga Simpson’s latest, Nest, is delicate nature writing told through the life of an artist and lost children. While Helen Garner turns a novelist’ eye to a tragic story, and the murder trial of a man who killed his three sons, in This House of Grief.
