2005 Miles Franklin Award Shortlist

The shortlisted works for the 2005 Miles Franklin award have now been announced. The shortlist is:

Salt Rain by Sarah Armstrong
The Gift of Speed by Steven Carroll
Sixty Lights by Gail Jones
The White Earth by Andrew McGahan
The Submerged Cathedral by Charlotte Wood

The winner will be announced on June 23 at the State Library of NSW. "The Australian" has a report about yesterday's announcement of the shortlist. Matilda has previously looked at three of these novels (follow the links) and the others will follow over the next week or so. I'll also attempt to work my way through the titles, and comment on them as I go.
