First Book Club

Meet tomorrow’s biggest authors today as we shine a spotlight on debut Australian authors.

The KYD First Book Club was established in 2014. Each month we promote a new release debut book of fiction or non-fiction that we’re gunning for everyone to read!

Through a series of events, online content and podcast coverage, the KYD First Book Club encourages wide-ranging and long-lasting conversations about these authors and their books both on and offline.

November First Book Club: Lucky’s by Andrew Pippos

Kill Your Darlings’ First Book Club pick for november is Andrew Pippos’ Lucky’s (Picador), an exuberant, magical Australian saga about migration, mystery, tragedy and love.

Lucky’s is a story of family.
A story about migration.
It is also about a man called Lucky.
His restaurant chain.
A fire that changed everything.
A New Yorker article which might save a career.
The mystery of a missing father.
An impostor who got the girl.
An unthinkable tragedy.
A roll of the dice.
And a story of love—lost, sought and won again (at last).

Stay tuned for features on our website and podcast throughout the month!

First Book Club will be back in 2021!

Revisit our previous First Book Club picks from throughout the year in Shelf Reflection, Books Roundup and the KYD Podcast.
