Readers are spoilt for choice: bookshops are overflowing with the great, the good (and the rest), and it could not be harder to choose what to read next.
Every fortnight, let DEBUT MONDAYS be your guide. Come and have a glass of wine and discover the best new writers around.
Featuring: Poetry Slam champ Ezra Bix’s Dancing in the Lifeboat, Christine Darcas’s debut novel Dancing in High Heels Backwards, Alzheimer’s, A Love Story by prize-winning short story writer Vivienne Ulman and Damon Young’s Distraction: A Philosopher’s Guide to Being Free.
Christine Darcas has had fiction and non-fiction published in the US, Australia and elsewhere overseas. In the US, her short stories have been published in the Vermont Literary Review, THEMA, Potpourri, and the now-defunct Belletrist Review (which nominated that story for a Pushcart Prize).
In the last two years Ezra has won regional heats and the Victorian state final of the Australian Poetry Slam and has come third and second in the national final at the Sydney Opera House.
Vivienne Ulman is a prize-winning short-story writer, a freelance journalist, and book reviewer. She divides her time between rural Tasmania and urban Melbourne.
Damon Young is a prize-winning philosopher and writer. He is the author of ten books in English and translation, including The Art of Reading, How to Think About Exercise, Philosophy in the Garden and Distraction. Young is also the author of several popular children’s books, including My Brother is a Beast and My Sister is a Superhero.
