Niece on John Button long list

The long list has been announced for the John Button Prize for ‘Australia’s best piece of writing on politics and public policy in the past year’. I’ve read a number of the essays and books that made the cut, but the one that’s relevant to today’s nepotistic agenda  is Paula Shaw’s Seven Seasons in Aurukun.

The judges – Bob Carr, Kerry O’Brien, Morag Fraser, Judith Brett and J.M. Coetzee – don’t look corruptible, otherwise I’d urge all four of my readers to try to influence them by any means necessary. They meet at the end of July to choose a short list of six, and the winner will be announced on 28 August.

Carn the Shaws!
