Portrait of Jane Rawson

Jane Rawson

Jane Rawson wrote the novel A wrong turn at the Office of Unmade Lists, published by Transit Lounge and shortlisted for an Aurealis Award for science fiction. Ed Wright at the Australian said the book had ‘taken risks with plausibility and triumphed’ while the Adelaide Advertiser’s Patrick Allington said it was ‘one of the stranger debut novels I have read … a wacky mediation on loss and grief, on creativity, on treating the planet badly and making the best of things’.

Jane was previously the Energy & Environment Editor at The Conversation and she is currently working on a personal handbook for surviving climate change, though she earns her salary writing about IT. She blogs at janebryonyrawson.wordpress.com, tweets at @frippet and lives in Melbourne’s west.
