Penguin Book Club
The Penguin Books Australia Book Club presents reading choices that are selected especially for book clubs. Our book club recommendations are chosen for their broad appeal, relevance to current events or cultural moments - and because they are excellent books, pure and simple. We’ll dive in to new releases, catch up on brilliant books you might have missed, and revisit some classics.
New selections will be added regularly, twice a month – along with plenty of ideas to spark conversation when you get together with your book club friends get together. Keep coming back for new surprises!

Reviews: ‘Tim Winton’s Doris is a gem . . . The characterisations are a joy. The sense of place, and senses stimulated are pure Winton . . . Eyrie, with so much of the seedy side of town, is a good example of what Winton calls “marinating in the sounds and lives of other people”. How it then translates to Winton’s mastery as a storyteller is what we get to enjoy.’ Lyn Mills, Canberra Times
‘Outstanding . . . From the opening pages you know you are in the hands of a master. The writing is just effortlessly great.’ Stephen Romei, Weekend Australian
