Maxine Beneba Clarke is the Indie Book of the Year Debut Fiction winner!

'In Melbourne's western suburbs, in a dilapidated block of flats overhanging the rattling Footscray train lines, a young black mother is working on a collection of stories.'

We're very excited that Maxine's Foreign Soil, a collection of short stories that gives voice to the disenfranchised, the lost, the downtrodden, and the mistreated, has won the Indie Book of the Year Debut Fiction award. Cheers for Independent Booksellers!
