Steven Carroll was born in Melbourne and grew up in Glenroy. He went to La Trobe University and taught English in schools before playing in bands in the 1970s. After leaving the music scene he began work as a playwright and became a theatre critic. Now a full-time novelist and reviewer, he has twice been short-listed for the prestigious Miles Franklin Literary Award - the richest literary prize in Australia.
A beautifully written novel with wonderful descriptive prose. The real bonus is that MIRA now include a Read All About It section at the back with questions for book groups notes on what inspired the novel and much, much more. A lovely book to get lost in.
April 2007 Debut of the MonthA beautifully written book about love, jealousy and betrayal. As events unfold you find yourself mentally shouting out to the characters to communicate with one another rather than take the paths which inevitably will cause heartache and loss.Set at the end of World War II when so many lives have been touched and damaged by those events the story of Spin and Momoko is all the more poignant.A fantastic debut novel, I will be looking out for Steven Carroll’s next with great anticipation.
