You Belong Here follows the Slater family from the years 1972 – 2002, finding faith, faults, and redemption, in a raw, at times heartbreaking, but ultimately hopeful meditation on what it means to be a family in modern Australia.

'An unforgettable exploration of the things that hold families together, and tear them apart. It finds the extraordinary in ordinary lives, and brings a tenderness, honesty, and sense of humour that’s rarely seen in Australian fiction. It’s beautifully written and stays with you long after it ends.' — Ryan O’Neill, 2017 Miles Franklin shortlisted author

  • Great read

    You know you you've stumbled across a gem when you laugh, cry and get really infuriated with the characters all in a single afternoon!

    The Slater family are such deep characters with such realistic relationships that I found myself thinking "but that's uncle X, or my mate Y", and I had a really hard time believing that it wasn't autobiographical but I guess that's the genius of the novel, it draws you in and feels so real.

    Honestly, this is a must read for anyone who was a teenager in the 80s and 90s, or parented teens in that era, or has a family you love but hate all at the same time. And bonus points if you remember the Perth of the 80s and 90s... just be prepared for a flood of crazy memories, this book should come with a trigger warning for Perth gen Xers!
