Patriotic prose: 8 of the best new Australian novels to sink your teeth into

While I'm not sporting a Southern Cross tattoo and couldn't tell you the last time I used the word 'mate' without a hint of sarcasm, I am damn proud to be Australian. It's really no wonder Melbourne keeps stealing the title of 'The world's most livable city' — despite the rapidly changing weather conditions, Melbourne really is the best place to live. My own home town pride aside, Australia is a beautiful and diverse country (both physically and culturally), which is why the latest batch of Australian novels are able to be so diverse.

These books range in time periods from the 1930s to the present and cover men, women and children. We're exposed to a broad range of characters from young kids learning about the evils of the world through to weathered adults looking to make a change. I'll admit that technically, at least one of these books isn't based in Australia but you can still see how the writer's upbringing coloured their writing.
