The Sydney Morning Herald Best Young Australian Novelists Awards feature 3 Curtis Brown authors

Congratulations Maxine Beneba Clarke (‘Foreign Soil,’ Hachette), Omar Mus (‘Here Come the Dogs,’ Hamish Hamilton), and Alice Pun (‘Laurinda,’ Black Inc.)! One of the judges, Linda Morris, described the writers as ‘outsiders writing about what it is to be outsiders. Their stories are peopled by loners, the disenfranchised, the broken and the criminal. Barely a peep of white picket fence Australia between them.’
