Two books under the Christmas tree:

Poor Fellow My Country by Xavier Herbert, which won Australia's Miles Franklin award in 1975 and has been reissued in a lovely 40th anniversary hardback edition. Sounds fabulous, but at 1440 pages of pretty small type it will likely take me weeks to read!

The Concise Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature edited by William Toye. A joy to thumb through, but I've already added dozens of books to my wishlist as a result.
