In a few weeks I will take a trip to Australia. While I am there I will visit bookstores, some used and some new. I would love to hear any suggestions anyone has about what Australian books I might want to keep an eye out for while browsing, especially books that it would be difficult to buy outside of Australia (no offense, Peter Carey).
I don't really mind what kind of book they are or what they're about -- fiction, scholarship, poetry, journalism, whatever; I just want good writing by Australian writers. (Not really interested in collections of photos etc.) My only requirements are:
1) They must to be reasonably priced. I don't have the funds to buy books priced for the University library market, no matter how interesting.
2) They must have been released within the last five years -- anything earlier than that and I probably already read 'em. (So the answers from this question
are mostly irrelevant.)
