Miles Franklin Literary Award Goes To!

Goes indeed to Tim Winton and his potent novel, "Breath"!
This is Tim's 4th Miles Franklin Literary Award.

Due to his dislike for large gatherings (I can understand that!!), he wasn't there to accept his award but a prerecorded acceptance speech was shown where he brought up the serious problems that could confront Australian publishers, authors and book stores, if the Australian Productivity Commission plans to allow the "parallel importation" (Lateline 18/6/09) of overseas books into the country.
