'The Lucky Galah' makes The Readings Prize for New Australian Fiction shortlist 2018

August 21, 2018

Tracy Sorensen’s THE LUCKY GALAH (Pan Macmillan) has been shortlisted in the Readings Prize for New Australian Fiction 2018!

The judge’s comments were: “This warm and heartfelt novel gives a fresh perspective of a key moment in Australia’s past – when the Parkes radio telescope brought pictures of the US moon landing to the world. Lucky the galah is a born storyteller and her wry observations will inspire a new appreciation of birds.”

The winner will be announced online in late October, and will be featured in the November issue of Readings Monthly. They will receive $3000 in prize money.
