Here are the titles I welcomed into my home the last few weeks:
Trio by Geraldine Wooller
Celia, Marcia, and Mickey meet and become friends in London. Searching for work and success in the theatre, they end up sharing a flat and a deep bond of friendship. Set in Italy, London and Australia from the sixties to current times, Trio is the story of their complex personalities and relationships, of the betrayals and desires that threaten to undermine what is in hindsight most important to them.
From Transit Lounge for review. I’ve not read anything from this Aussie author before but really looking forward this.

Present Darkness by Malla Nunn
Audio Narrated by: Rupert Degas
Length: 8 hrs and 7 mins
Series: Detective Emmanuel Cooper, Book 3
I’ve not read anything from Malla Nunn before but have heard good things about this Aussie author’s work and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every audiobook I’ve listened to narrated by Rupert Degas (listen to an audio sample).
And, am doing an unusual thing for me, joining a series halfway through!

Nanoparticles by Charlotte Wood
In ‘Nanoparticles’, Lisa cannily observes the people waiting alongside her at the motor registry, from the harried mother of two to the man engrossed in his newspaper. With her characteristically sharp and tender observations, Charlotte Wood examines the smallest things that draw us together and the many larger issues that wrench us apart.
I’ve been eyeing off this short story from Charlotte Wood for some time now and finally decided to buy it. This Aussie author’s work has been recommended to me on many occasions and this story’s premise sounds right up my alley.
