Alice Campion launches her second novel - The Shifting Light

Penguin Random House last week released Alice Campion's new novel, The Shifting Light.

The Shifting Light is the Alice Campions' second collaboration.

More than six years ago, five book club friends embarked on a journey to write a book together. The Painted Sky (2015 Random House) was the first Australian novel to be written by a group and has since been published internationally, with the Alices appearing at events around the world.

Following the release of The Painted Sky, four members of Alice Campion have delivered this highly-anticipated sequel. The stand-alone story is a suspenseful page-turner that deftly explores themes of modern life in the outback, whilst brimming with suspense and intrigue.

Readers and reviewers have been wowed by the seamless voice of Alice Campion and the quality of the writing.

What others are saying

At first we couldn’t believe that The Painted Sky was written by five people - it reads seamlessly, and the characters and storylines are so vividly realised.”
