Best Books for Spring

The team from Book Face Port Macquarie share their favourite reads for the season.

Fiction

The Nowhere Child

The debut novel from Australian author, Christian White represents a new voice in crime fiction. This is a tale of trauma, cult, conspiracy and memory.

Second Sight

More home-grown talent in the crime fiction genre. This, the second novel by Aoife Clifford is described as a taut and thrilling read. Written across two timelines it will keep readers guessing until the very end.

Boy Swallows Universe

There is high praise for this book by Walkley-winning journalist Trent Dalton. Set in Brisbane in the 80s, the novel is described as a story of “brotherhood, true love and the most unlikely of friendships.”

The World’s Worst Children 3

The latest collection of stories of beastly boys and ghastly girls from British comedian, actor and author David Walliams.

Cicada

This is the latest book from award-wining Aussie author and illustrator Shaun Tan. As the title suggests, a suitwearing insect is at the heart of this picture book about an unappreciated cicada and the drudgery of office life. The book has a rich subtext with themes of migrant workers and workplace bullying and is recommended for children and adults alike.

Non-Fiction

Eggshell Skull

A powerful, brave and compelling memoir about standing up, speaking out and fighting back. Eggshell Skull tells of Bri Lee’s journey through the legal system from one side of the courtroom, as a judge’s associate, to the other just two years later as a complainant telling her own harrowing story.

All of the above titles including Empty are available at Book Face Store and Café at Port Central.
