Announcing the 2017 long list for the Voss Literary Prize

Congratulations to these ten Australian novelists, long-listed for the annual Voss literary prize in 2017, awarded to the best novel published in the previous year.

Jennifer Down, Our Magic Hour

Toni Jordan, Our Tiny, Useless Hearts

Micheline Lee, The Healing Party

Kate Mildenhall, Skylarking
