Richard Flanagan, Hannah Kent win in Indie Awards

Richard Flanagan’s moving The Road to the Deep North, about Australian soldiers on the Thai-Burma railway in World War 2, has been voted best fiction book by the independent booksellers of Australia. Hannah Kent’s superb, Burial Rites, won best debut novel in the Indie Awards. The other winners were Girt by David Hunt (best non-fiction) and Kissed by the Moon by Alison Lester (children’s book). Despite a few fatalities over the past 12 months, Australia’s independent bookshops still continue to give wonderful service: a little haven in the community.
