Hello Readers! For Non-Fiction in March there was: 16 reviews, 13 reviewers, and 15 books reviewed (4 poetry). Excitingly, 8 of the books reviewed this month were completely new to the AWW database. So a big thank you! The most prolific reviewer was: Tegan Edwards (me 😱) with 3 books reviewed. The most reviewed title this month was: The Husband Poisoner (2021) by Tanya Bretherton which was reviewed twice. As always, click on the coloured quote from a review to be taken directly to it. And a quick reminder: this round up includes poetry submissions despite their not being non-fiction. It just came out in the wash that way! Perhaps one day we’ll have enough poetry reviews to give them their own round up (it’s not wishful thinking, I swear).
To begin we have two very new releases in the field of disability and illness. The first is Growing Up Disabled in Australia (2021) which is the latest in the “in Australia” series that includes Growing Up Aboriginal and Growing Up Queer amongst others. It is edited by the indomitable Carly Findlay and includes a range of contributors.
Being Non-Fiction November there was, as can be expected, an array of titles and subject matters covered in this month’s reviews. It was great to see. I’ve highlighted a few in particular from each general non-fiction category that appeared and it speaks to the broadness and diversity of the genre, ranging from the literary to books about climate change to self-help titles.
