Best Books of the Year 2008 #9 - "The Sunday Times"

"The Sunday Times" chose three Australian novels in its "year of fantastic fiction".

Breath by Tim Winton: "Once again, he displays his exceptional power at conveying intense physical sensation while subtly exploring emotional and psychological complexities."
The Spare Room by Helen Garner: "This novel's extraordinary feat is to be at once affecting, involving and sharply funny..."
His Illegal Self by Peter Carey: "Nicely gauged satire, ebullient narrative drive and headily sensuous writing make the book irresistibly compelling."
