The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based booklist available as an online-only Bulletin feature. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

Going Where It's Summer:  An Australian Dozen

--selected by Deborah Stevenson, Editor

The cold weather has rolled in here, so as we sometimes do we're going to fight it in literary fashion, this time by going to Australia, where summer is rapidly approaching.  Here we offer a gathering of notable Australian fiction from the last couple of years, which demonstrates the strength of the antipodean contribution in both fantasy and realism and in styles including lively free verse, fluid serious prose, and sardonic comedy.  Bonza.
