              A young and penniless writer, Kif Kehlmann, is rung in the middle of the night by the notorious con man and corporate criminal, Siegfried Heidl. About to go to trial for defrauding the banks of $700 million, Heidl proposes a deal- $10,000 for Kehlmann to ghost write his memoir in... six weeks.But as the writing gets under way, Kehlmann begins to fear that he is being corrupted by Heidl. As the deadline draws closer, he becomes ever more unsure if he is ghost writing a memoir, or if Heidl is rewriting him-his life, his future. Everything that was certain grows uncertain as he begins to wonder- who is Siegfried Heidl-and who is Kif Kehlmann?By turns compelling, comic, and chilling, First Person is a haunting journey into the heart of our age.'Powerful, funny, disturbing, moving . . . Flanagan candidly and honestly confronts the raw truths of the writing life and the family life, material and spiritual poverty, love and despair and desire . . . He touches on genuine brilliance.' - The Australian'A triumph . . . This is a book of demonic possession, of obsession, and there's a zinger of thought, of expression, in every paragraph. First Person is a parable for the age of Trump' - Phillip Adams, The Weekend Australian Magazine'Flanagan's most artfully constructed and thematically complex novel to date.' - Australian Book Review

              NOW AVAILABLE IN A NEW VINTAGE EDITION What would you do if you turned on the television and saw you were the most wanted terrorist in the country? Gina Davies is about to find out.

When police find three unexploded bombs at a stadium and her enigmatic lover suddenly goes missing, Gina spends five days on the run and witnesses every truth of her life twisted into a betrayal.

              Aljaz Cosini is leading a group of tourists on a raft tour down Tasmania's wild Franklin River when his greatest fear is realised - a tourist falls overboard. An ordinary man with many regrets, Aljaz rises to an uncharacteristic heroism, and offers his own life in trade. Trapped ...under a rapid and drowning, Aljaz is beset with visions both horrible and fabulous. He sees Couta Ho, the beautiful, spirited woman he loved, and witnesses his uncle Reg having his teeth pulled and sold to pay for a ripple-iron house. He sees cities grow from the wild rain forest and a tree burst into flower in midwinter over his grandfather's forest grave. As the entirety of Tasmanian life - flora and fauna - sings him home, Aljaz arrives at a world where dreaming reasserts its power over thinking, where his family tree branches into stories of all human families, stories that ground him in the land and reveal the soul history of his country.
