Publishers Overview

In Print and Prize, Nicholas Hasluck gives a graphic account of his work as Chair of the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize.

At literary festivals in far places, such as Delhi, Colombo, Treasure Beach in Jamaica and Franschhoek in South Africa, he explored vital contemporary issues, from post-colonial critiques to debates about truth-telling, national identity and role of the monarchy. Encounters with writers and colourful scenes along the way add spice to his story.

The author studied law in Perth, then Oxford, before serving as a judge of the Supreme Court of Western Australia. A winner of The Age Book of the Year Award, he has written 14 novels and various books casting light on the relationship between law and literature.
