Both worth a read.
I'm discovering a lot of Australian authors, and Gail Jones is my new favourite - I'm now reading Sorry which I'm having trouble putting down.
I love Clare Morrall's novels because they're usually set in Birmingham which takes me back to my uni days - especially this one which is partly set in Selly Oak and Harborne - ah those were the days...
I picked up The Midnight Zoo while the boys were in their art class at the library - it's really a children's book but I loved its depiction of three children taking care of each other and then discovering a zoo full of animals to take care of.
