Too many to list but when I finished 'A Suitable Boy' I felt bereft as though I'd lost a close circle of friends. Also loved 'A Fine Balance' by Rohinton Mistry - one of the most brilliant books I've ever read. Particular inclination towards Indian authors.
Bruce Pascoe’s wonderful book Dark Emu. Hiss passion and research were inspiring and impressive.
