Staying home? Then, enjoy the best homegrown fiction from 2021 while you’re not able to go anywhere.

There’s both laughs and tears in Episode 33 of the Hope Book Club!

  • Smart Ovens for Lonely People is a collection of quirky and funny short stories by the imaginative Elizabeth Tan.
  • Chasing the McCubbin by Sandi Saunich is set in 1990s Melbourne. It’s a novel about a lonely collector hunting for an original McCubbin among the garage sales of suburban Melbourne. It’s also a story of unexpected friendship.
  • The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman by Julietta Henderson tells the story of an 11-year-old with a dream to perform comedy at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Norman is dealing with the loss of his best friend and his devoted single mum will do anything to make him happy again.

Plus, we discuss which section of the bookshop we go to first and why.

That’s all in Episode 33 of the Hope Book Club – because lockdown life’s just better with a book.
