Author: Byrne, Jessie
Issue Date: 2019
School/Discipline: School of Humanities : English and Creative Writing
Abstract: This thesis combines an original novel ‘Angel Port’ and an exegesis on the Davitt Awards. ‘Angel Port’ is a contemporary literary comic crime novel, named for a fictional seaside town in which the protagonist Nathan Newland must choose between transformation and retreat when confronted with the local secrets. The exegesis offers original research into the establishment, development and impact of the Davitt Awards, Sisters in Crime Australia’s crime-writing awards for books by Australian women. The novel and exegesis are loosely linked through the exploration of the idea of just deserts, both good and ill.
