The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick

Mansfield and Me: A Graphic Memoir by Sarah Laing

Can You Tolerate This by Ashleigh Young


This is excellent! For the complete list of contributions at Booknotes Unbound see here.

Good to see Emma Neale’s Billy Bird, Gregory Kan’s This Paper Boat and Sarah Laing’s Mansfield & Me make numerous appearances. Good reads indeed!

I felt the best books of 2016 list in The Herald did not involve a scan back over the year to select gold nuggets but a cluster of books that had not yet been reviewed. Disappointing.
