Our December Selection: There Was Still Love
From the Miles Franklin shortlisted author Favel Parrett comes our December selection, the moving and masterfully told There Was Still Love. Moving between Melbourne and Prague over a period of fifty-odd years, the novel is an ode to grandparents, specifically grandmothers, and their capacity to bind families together despite dislocation and distance. Understated and yet able to capture deep sentiments, this is a gentle and truly beautiful read.
Sidenote: we were so honoured to have Favel compose our monthly letter to subscribers - a special treat indeed!
