Top ‘Books+Publishing’ stories, reviews of 2016

In October, Books+Publishing reported on the imminent arrival of a new bar and bookshop in Melbourne specialising in Irish whiskey and Irish literature. Our story on Buck Mulligan’s—which has since opened its doors—was our most popular news story of the year. We happen to think our readers have pretty good taste!

Awards announcements also grabbed the attention of our readers: specifically, the CBCA Notable Books, the Miles Franklin Literary Award longlist and shortlist, and the Patrick White Literary Award; as did our story on the bestselling Australian adult fiction and nonfiction titles of 2015-16—led by Rosalie Ham’s The Dressmaker (Duffy & Snellgrove) and Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar: Simplicious (Macmillan).
