    This year's Miles Franklin Award went to this meditation on intimacy, loneliness & our flawed perception of other people.

    Winning the 2013 Miles Franklin Award for Questions of Travel cemented Michelle de Kretser’s reputation as one of Australia’s most important novelists. Her latest work, The Life to Come, follows mediocre author Pippa through Australian share houses, a Paris writing residency and a lacklustre Sydney marriage, and is a true delight. Through the narrative, De Kretser turns her sharp eye onto literary culture in an unflinching examination of art and creativity, and returns to her favoured themes of travel, identity and racism. Her trademark witty and acerbic judgement lands on people and relationships, and also on our longing for lives that most of us can’t have.
