              At 24, life was good for Georgie Dent. After graduating with top marks she had landed her dream job at a prestigious Sydney law firm and moved in with a boyfriend she adored. She had the world at her feet and no right to break. But she did. Badly. Within a year Georgie was unempl...oyed, back living with her parents and suffering such crippling anxiety that she ended up in a psychiatric hospital. BREAKING BADLY is the story of a nervous breakdown in slow motion - a life that fell apart and what it took to put it back together again. Brutally honest and warmly engaging, it's a must-read for anyone who sometimes feels close to the edge.

              'One thing I really regret is that I can't hold a grown up, intellectual, spiritual conversation in my own language but I can order a meal in Vietnamese with an Australian accent. So embarrassment. What I regret most...is that I can't squat. Maybe the Minister Of Culture was righ...t and I am a traitor to my own people because I can't speak the language properly and I can't squat. Bad Asian all round.' - Hung Le I carry you on my back, climb boats, keep you alive with noodle juice, your mum has to go to work ironing clothes in a factory while getting abused and yelled at by people she can't understand and can't hear. Your relatives are back in Vietnam rotting in jail or living in poverty and you become the first Asian ever to be kicked out of Melbourne University? - Hung Le's dad On the last day of the Vietnam War, nine-year-old Hung jumped on a leaking prawn trawler on the Saigon River, somehow cheating death to become one of the first Vietnamese boat people to arrive Australia, a land where a young man's potential is limited only by his imagination - that is unless you're Hung Le. Defying the stereotype, Hung wasn't a math or computer whizz, he had no doctoring or lawyering abilities, spoke Vietnamese with an Australian accent, and couldn't even play the violin. But what he was blessed with was funny bones, and through winning Red Faces on Hey Hey It's Saturday he managed to make an international career playing the violin out of tune. THE CRAPPIEST REFUGEE is an hilarious and endearing memoir about a boat person who never found his land legs, but who has always seen the funny side.

              Scottish-born Robert Wales sailed into Sydney Harbour during WWII, and knew he wanted to stay. But a wife and five young kids later, he was choking in the city and doctors prescribed fresh country air. In 1953, with no experience and only knowledge he'd picked up from a few books..., he uprooted his family and set out to establish a sheep farm in the bush. When they arrive on a lonely hill in northern New South Wales, they have no electricity, no running water, no telephone and no choice but to make this their home. From Angela Wales, eldest of the five kids, comes this extraordinarily vivid and evocative account of the next ten years as they try to tame six thousand acres of bush and navigate the challenges of country life. Filled with drama and hilarity, joy and back-breaking toil, BAREFOOT IN THE BINDIS portrays a childhood spent in the outback, and is a sensational picture of Australia past.

              Author Leo Kennedy is the great-grandson of Sergeant Michael Kennedy. Raised in the shadow of his great-grandfather's murder, Leo witnessed the deep psychological wounds inflicted on successive generations of his family - and the families of other victims - as the Ned Kelly myth ...grew around them and the sacrifice of their loved ones was forgotten. Leo himself was nicknamed 'Red Ned' at school and taunted for being on the wrong side of Australian history. Now, for the first time, and in brilliant prose that brings these historical episodes to life, Black Snake challenges the legend of Ned Kelly. Instead of celebrating a heroic man of the people, it gives voice to the victims of a merciless gang of outlaws. This is a captivating true story, gleaned from meticulous research and family history, of two men from similar backgrounds whose legacies were distorted by history.

              It was no surprise that Angela Williams went to jail. A traumatic, violent upbringing saw to that. But after serving a short sentence for theft as a teenager, she worked hard to break the cycle. Thirteen years later Angela was studying, teaching, providing a stable home for her s...on, and finally feeling like she'd got her life together. Then she got hit by a postie bike. Police realised that Angela still had ten months to go on the prison sentence she'd thought was in her distant past. However, Angela was a different prisoner the second time around: no longer a scared, damaged nineteen-year-old, she knew how to speak up for herself and her fellow prisoners against a system of power, privilege and cruelty that controls the lives of Australia's most vulnerable women and offers little hope for redemption. With unwavering courage, intelligence and humour, SNAKES AND LADDERS reveals an astonishing true story of falling through the cracks, and what it takes to climb back out again.
