NON-FICTION 45 What should I read next? My Story by Schapelle Corby The Pastor and the Painter Cindy Wockner The sentencing and eventual executions of Australians Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran were always going to polarise the public. Should these convicted drug dealers, members of the Bali Nine, deserve clemency due to their rehabilitation in an Indonesian prison? This harrowing account of the two young men’s 10 years in custody and their final weeks of life is written by journalist Cindy Wockner, who had unrivalled access and was considered a friend. Her closeness tends towards a subjectivity that is decidedly un-journalistic, but with the unavoidable climax of the book hanging heavy throughout, it lends a unique chance to learn more about these shattered — and ultimately redemptive lives.
