How to win the Miles Franklin: analysing 64 years of data

  • by Pallavi Singhal

Amanda Lohrey admits she is hopelessly impractical. So there’s an irony that she frequently writes about making or building things. At the heart of The Labyrinth, her seventh novel, lies the creation of one of those “constructs that is over 50,000 years old and found in most cultures”.

Today, she has been awarded Australia’s most significant literary prize, the $60,000 Miles Franklin, for this spare tale of a woman coming to grips with the losses, absences and sense of guilt in her life.

The British singer and songwriter’s latest hit leads the First Look chart, which ranks the territory's most popular songs based on sales and streaming activity over the weekend.

Meanwhile, “Heartbreak Anthem” from Galantis, David Guetta and Little Mix lifts 6-2, and is on track for a new peak in its ninth week on the chart.
