My first novel, The Singing, was published in 2005 (Brandl & Schlesinger). As a result of this publication I was named one of the Sydney Morning Herald’s Best Young Australian Novelists (2006). The Singing was also shortlisted for the Kathleen Mitchell Award. Following this I completed a PhD at Cambridge in contemporary poetry and poetics.

My second novel, The Other Side of the World, was published in Australia by Hachette, in the UK by Tinder Press/Headline and in the US by Atria Press/Simon & Schuster. The Other Side of the World won Literary Fiction Book of Year in the  2015 Australian Book Industry Awards and the 2015 Readings Prize for New Australian Fiction was shortlisted for the Australian/Vogel's Literary Award, the Victorian Premier's Literary Awards, the NSW Premier's Literary Awards, the Australian Independent Bookseller's Award and Longlisted for the Stella Prize. It was It won Literary Fiction Book of Year in the Australian Book Industry Awards. (2009). This book was supported by an Australia Council New Work grant (2009) and an Asialink Fellowship (2011).

My most recent novel is, Man Out of Time (Hachette Australia, 2018).This book was supported by an Australia Council New Work grant (2014).

My work has appeared in The Times Literary Supplement, The Guardian, The Monthly, The Australian, the Sydney Review of Books, the Sydney Morning Herald, amongst other places.  Current research and writing interests include the legacy of the modernist novel and the phenomenological process of literary composition. I'm particularly interested in psychoanalysis, philosophical aesthetics, contemporary feminism and life writing.  In 2016 I was a Visiting Scholar at the Centre for Life Writing at the University of Oxford.
