  • Home Before Night, by J.P Pomare. Hachette, $32.99

The main action in Home Before Night - J.P. Pomare's newest novel - takes place over a few days during a lockdown in Melbourne. COVID-19 is not mentioned by name, so the setting reads like an alternative present or near future where things have gotten worse rather than better.
