In his mid-20s, and already a Walkley Award-winning journalist, Robert Drewe shifted his focus to writing fiction. He is now the author of seven novels, four books of short stories, two memoirs, six other works of non-fiction and two plays. His work has been widely translated, and adapted for film, television, theatre and radio and has received many awards. The Drowner was the first novel to win the Premier’s Literary Prize in every State, as well as winning the Australian Book of the Year Prize, the Adelaide Festival Prize for literature and was voted one of the ten best international novels of the decade.
