Jon Doust: Miles Franklin Long List

March 19, 2010 at 7:17 am Leave a comment

Congratulations to Jon Doust whose book Boy on a Wire has been long listed for the 2010 Miles Franklin award. Jon was the MC at the Launch of my book The Last Whale.

Doust’s story, based on his experiences in a 1960s boarding school, was listed alongside 12 other books including Jasper Jones by fellow WA author Craig Silvey.

Doust said it felt “odd and strange” to have Boy on a Wire included on the Miles Franklin Award long list.

“At first I laughed, because I thought the long list would be about 50 authors, but when it was made clear to me it was only 12, I had difficulty breathing,” said Doust.
