Awards: Readings Prize for New Australian Fiction

Zoë Morrison has won the 2016 Readings Prize for New Australian Fiction for her debut novel, Music and Freedom.

Readings, which has seven shops in Melbourne, Australia, described the book this way: "Set over a period of 70 years, Music and Freedom is a profound and moving portrait of one woman's life, ranging from rural Australia in the 1930s to England in the modern day. The Prize judges were united in considering the novel a sophisticated and intelligent work of fiction."

Readings founder and managing director Mark Rubbo called Music and Freedom "a stimulating, thought-provoking and immensely satisfying book."
