Anna Funder wins the Miles Franklin
Sebastian Barry beat five other shortlisted authors: Patrick de Witt who wrote The Sisters Brothers which I thoroughly enjoyed and which I can imagine the Coen brothers making into a film, Pure by Andrew Miller which I quite enjoyed, Half Blood Blues by Esi Edugyan, The Stranger’s Child by Alan Hollinghurst and The Quality of Mercy by Barry Unsworth, none of which I can comment on.
