Sydney based Australian author Andrew Pippos, whose debut 2020 novel Lucky’s was shortlisted for the 2021 Miles Franklin Literary Award, writing for the State Library of NSW’s Openbook magazine, an excerpt from an upcoming new book of his, I believe.

As any book lover knows, walking into a bookshop and being confronted with hundreds (if not thousands) of books to choose from can be overwhelming. It is also one of the best feelings in the world.

The Readings is an award that focuses on newly published authors, a few more prizes like this are needed.
