Celebrate Awards Week with free books, part II: The Broken Shore
Detectives Beyond Borders has a copy to send to the first reader who correctly answers this skill-testing question:
Temple, who has lived and worked in Australia for about thirty years but did not grow up there, once told an interviewer that:
"If you come to a new society in midlife, your perceptions are sharper. Everything in Australia was strange to me. It’s an English-speaking country but it’s quite unlike England or America. It’s a very interesting and complex society, with lots of problems, and also a very egalitarian one."Of what country is Peter Temple a native?
If you know the answer (and you have not won a Detectives Beyond Borders competition in the past three months), send it, along with your name and postal address, to detectivesbeyondborders(at)earthlink(dot)net.
And don't forget your chance to win a newly arrived copy of Fred Vargas' latest, This Night's Foul Work.
