Top 40 Book Club : Top 40 Book Club Reads 2019
10 TOP 40 BOOK CLUB READS FICTION What should I read next? Black Rock White City by A.S. Patri ́c Prize Fighter Future D. Fidel Prize Fighter continues the proud Australian tradition of migrant stories. Future D. Fidel’s tale of unimaginable heartbreak is not his own story, yet he too left the Democratic Republic of Congo and was resettled in Australia as a refugee, lending the novel a moving authenticity. Isa Alaki escapes life as a child soldier but the fight is still in him as he tries to adjust to a new home and learns that facing his demons will be the true battle. The book’s genesis was a one-man show — performed in Brisbane in 2015 — and its immediacy and flashes of slam poetry invite readers to consider the transition from stage to page.
