WIN 1 of 15 copies of Bruny by Heather Rose, thanks to Allen & Unwin.

The brilliant and explosive new novel from the author of the award-winning The Museum of Modern Love.

How far would your government go?

A right-wing US president has withdrawn America from the Middle East and the UN. Daesh has a thoroughfare to the sea and China is Australia’s newest ally. When a bomb goes off in remote Tasmania, Astrid Coleman agrees to return home to help her brother before an upcoming election. But this is no simple task. Her brother and sister are on either side of politics, the community is full of conspiracy theories, and her father is quoting Shakespeare. Only on Bruny does the world seem sane.

Until Astrid discovers how far the government is willing to go.


Bruny is a searing, subversive, brilliant novel about family, love, loyalty and the new world order.
