Barracuda is one of the most eagerly awaited new novels of 2013. It takes an unflinching look at modern Australia and asks what it means to be a good person and what it takes to become one. Christos is also a playwright, essayist and screenwriter. He lives in Melbourne.

Chrissie Swan

Chrissie Swan is a broadcaster, TV host and columnist. Her popular columns have been compiled for the first time in Is it just me? Nothing is off limits for Chrissie, self–confessed ‘over-sharer’. It is a hilarious book about celebrity, friendship, love, being a working mum and the general chaos of life. Chrissie Swan is co-host of MIX 101.1’s breakfast show in Melbourne and The 3pm Pick-Up nationally.

John Safran

John Safran is an award-winning documentary-maker of provocative and hilarious takes on race, the media , religion and other issues. Murder in Mississippi is John’s first book. It is a true-crime story and is a revealing portrait of a dead man, his murderer and the place they lived in. John’s journey and the process he took to find out the truth makes it a compelling and witty read. He currently co-hosts Sunday Night Safran with Father Bob Maguire on Triple J.
