Stedman’s debut novel won the 2013 Book of the Year award from the Indie Book awards, and the Debut Fiction Award that same year. It was also longlisted for the Miles Franklin Award as well as the International Dublin Literary Award.

The Sydney Morning Herald noted that it “is a work of such quality, insight and intrigue, it prompted an international bidding war among publishers” and called the novel “A remarkable, very readable, debut”. It was recently turned into a block buster movie in 2016 and has since garnered even more attention.

The Whitby Central Library Evening Fiction Book Club meets on the last Thursday of every month at 7 pm in the Children's Program Room.

There will be a copy of each month's selection available for the first 12 registrants. Waitlisted registrants who have read the book are welcome to attend the meeting.
