    Title: Arsonist, The: A Mind on Fire

    Format: HARDCOVER
    Imprint: PENGUIN
    Price: $29.99
    Publishing status: Active

    As she did in the excellent The Tall Man,
    Chloe Hooper traces a crime and its
    aftermath with subtlety, empathy and
    grace. The Arsonist is Brendan Sokaluk, the
    man convicted of deliberately lighting the
    Churchill fires on 2009’s Black Saturday.
    While the book is divided into two main
    parts – ‘The Detectives’ trying to piece
    together the ‘right bits’ and ‘The Lawyers’
    defending Sokaluk – its focus is broader,
    looking at the victims and survivors but
    most of all on Sokaluk himself, an autistic
    man with intellectual disability who is, in
    many ways, lost. NB: Hardback available
    only while stocks last.
