Melissa Manning has created resilient characters who live in the small communities of southern Tasmania, in the linked stories of  ‘Smokehouse’.

Jacqueline Bublitz merges the lives of Alice and Ruby in her novel, “Before You Knew My Name” and highlights the shared experience of women as Ruby tries to account for and solve Alice’s murder. Intriguingly, the narrator is Alice.
