Explanation of the Book:

Winner of the 2020 Miles Franklin Literary Award! "A beautifully written novel that puts language at the heart of remembering the past and understanding the present."—Kate Morton “A groundbreaking novel for black and white Australia.”—Richard Flanagan, Man Booker Prize winning author of The Narrow Road to the Deep North A young Australian woman searches for her grandfather's dictionary, the key to halting a mining company from destroying her family's home and ancestral land in this exquisitely written, heartbreaking, yet hopeful novel of culture, language, tradition, suffering, and empowerment in the tradition of Louise Erdrich, Sandra Cisneros, and Amy Harmon. Knowing that he will soon die, Albert “Poppy” Gondiwindi has one final task he must fulfill. A member of the indigenous Wiradjuri tribe, he has spent his adult life in Prosperous House and the town of Massacre Plains, a small enclave on the banks of the Murrumby River. Before he takes his last breath, Poppy is determined to pass on the language of his people, the traditions of his ancestors, and everything that was ever remembered by those who came before him. The land itself aids him; he finds the words on the wind. After his passing, Poppy’s granddaughter, August, returns home from Europe, where she has lived the past ten years, to attend his burial. Her overwhelming grief is compounded by the pain, anger, and sadness of memory—of growing up in poverty before her mother’s incarceration, of the racism she and her people endured, of the mysterious disappearance of her sister when they were children; an event that has haunted her and changed her life. Her homecoming is bittersweet as she confronts the love of her kin and news that Prosperous is to be repossessed by a mining company. Determined to make amends and honor Poppy and her family, she vows to save their land—a quest guided by the voice of her grandfather that leads into the past, the stories of her people, the secrets of the river. Told in three masterfully woven narratives, The Yield is a celebration of language and an exploration of what makes a place "home." A story of a people and a culture dispossessed, it is also a joyful reminder of what once was and what endures—a powerful reclaiming of Indigenous language, storytelling, and identity, that offers hope for the future.

Explanation of the Book:

Lloyd Jones' new novel is set mainly in a small village on Bougainville, a country torn apart by civil war. Matilda attends the school set up by Mr Watts, the only white man on the island. By his own admission he's not much of a teacher and proceeds to educate the children by reading them Great Expectations. Matilda falls in love with the novel, strongly identifying with Pip. The promise of the next chapter is what keeps her going; Pip's story protects her from the horror of what is happening around her - helicopters menacing the skies above the village and rebel raids on the ground. When the rebels visit the village searching for any remaining men to join their cause, they discover the name Pip written in the sand and instigate a search for him. When Pip can't be found the soldiers destroy the book. Mr Watts then encourages the children to retell the story from their memories. Then when the rebels invade the village, the teacher tells them a story which lasts seven nights, about a boy named Pip, and a convict . . .

Explanation of the Book:

He was drawn to the young hustler… the boy-for-hire… despite everything. Derek is addicted to being desired by someone new, the object of lust or love, whichever they wanted. He’s a hustler too damaged to be salvaged. Brian is the new “object” in his life, an older man with lots of money. Brian falls in love with the young hustler, but when he learns the truth about him, things change, and Derek must choose… Brian or boy-for-hire. *** Smiling warmly, Derek stood silently peering into Brian’s eyes. He leaned over and whispered, “Why don’t we find a booth in the other room?” Brian knew that soft, solicitous voice well, and once again, Derek seemed like the fresh-faced, young scholarship student he so admired in dance class. But Brian wondered if it was just another opening gambit in a well-practiced negotiation scheme. Briefly he thought about leaving, but he was already hooked, drawn to the young man no matter what the outcome. “Sure, why not.” Derek led them past the pianist to an adjoining room, where booths lined the far wall, empty of customers. Brian leaned over the table, glaring at him. “What the hell are you doing in here?” Derek stiffened. “What do you think I’m doing in here?” “Can’t you do something else, like wait tables, clean apartments… anything else?” Brian paused to catch his breath. “I don’t believe this, Derek.” “Believe it. I gotta eat, and I gotta pay rent,” Derek shot back. “I’ve had my own apartment for over three years, and I’m not giving it up.” “What about AIDS? Have you been tested?” “What for? A woman I slept with for a while was tested recently. She’s negative, so I guess I am too.” Brian couldn’t believe what he heard. “So you think you’ve been tested vicariously?” “Yeah. Look, I only do this if I need money for the rent. So, Brian, what are you looking for tonight?” Derek smiled seductively. “I really don’t know. I’ve walked by this place many times wondering what it was like in here.” Brian settled back in the booth, breathing deeply. “I just wanted to know more about you.” Derek tensed, but said in a gentle tone, “I think you’re a nice man.” “Maybe I am, but let’s face it, I’m an older man.” “You’re not so old. But I’ve got to warn you about something.” Derek’s sudden earnestness surprised him. His shifting emotional anchoring was hard to follow. “Yes.” “I’ve been taken care of by some men, but I’ve never loved any of them. It’s never been in me.”

Explanation of the Book:

... The year, for him, for Mister Broadway, was ending well: he was pronounced "A Person Of The Year" by The Times Square Bulletin (a Midtown Manhattan newspaper). Now the Person was concerned only with how not to get himself into another fine mess in the remaining two days of the year. But so far all went as it was supposed to; now Katya came to him. She is a young reporter with red-blue hair in worn-out jeans and colorful kerchief around her neck, petite, pretty, with great lakes of blue eyes, came to interview the Person of the Year. His features he received from the old tailor from Seventh Avenue (meaning the bronze statute of Garment Worker on 7th Avenue and 40th street). One day the old man was completing yet another job for the Metropolitan Opera: a costume of a king and a costume of a jester for a Shakespearian production. He finished the job but there were scraps, pieces and accessories left. For some reason amongst all of that luxury the three buttons catch the eye. One of the buttons is a large red one, the other two are emerald. Here he noticed the playful touchy being, which had that huge red button in place of its ears. Although it is one, it could turn and, who knows, it could make wishes come true. Spin it, make a wish and here, get your secret wish. The button was becoming bigger than the year-brain, it was becoming a Cosmic Mind. People become from dolls, and dolls from people looking at this wealth mumbled the old man . Thus, Mister Broadway became rainbow colored, a foot and change tall, with emerald eyes and one huge spinning year. ***** Mister Broadway was sitting in his tall chair cross-legged and deeply in his thoughts. "Well, if it's such a "military secret"..." it seemed that Katya was prepared to leave. "Oh, women, women!" the Mister Broadway sighed. "If there is a "military secret" - that's you!" and (what could he do?) he told her about the little adventure yesterday: how he tailed the Sorcerer, how the later sneaked into the dark abandoned house and how he, Mister Broadway, was stopped at the very door by the battered man. "How interesting!" Katya murmured. "Amazing..." her eyes wondered somewhere far away. "Just stepped inside and disappeared?.." "Yes..." "No lights; nothing?.." "Only outside..." "Will you show me the house?" she looked at him quickly. "What for?" "Well, I'm curious, you know..." "And you'll do a piece of reporting on it..." Mister Broadway said half-questioningly. "Of course!" she started. "No, I won't!" he cut off. "Why?!.." she was taken aback. "You have no reason to be there... especially on a New Year's Eve!" "But Mister Broadway, dear..." she turned on some foxy affection. "Maybe there is... a sensation! A mystery!" "Mystery?" "Yes! Mystery!" "Sensation?" "Sensation!" Katya's eyes fired up. "No, I won't!" But in a few minutes, with a slim "police" flashlight in his hand, grumpily mumbling under his breath, he lead her towards that house. The evening was cold, but the streets of Manhattan were awash with lights, smiles and music. The Times Square was filled with thousands, hundreds of thousands of people who were ready to stand there waiting for midnight when The Crystal Ball will descend at the famous 1475 Broadway... The streets on the West Side were not as peopled as in the center, lights became dimmer. But Mister Broadway was recognized and greeted everywhere as though he walked not on a city pavement but on a red carpet of some prestigious film festival. "It's here..." he stopped five yards away from the c
