Paul Mitchell’s episodic novel We. Are. Family was published in late 2016 to wide critical acclaim. Three brothers are forced to confront the quiet, pervasive violence of their family’s past and the distances they have all carried their father’s pain into their futures, and the novel unravels the twisting threads that tie us to the past.

The author of four previous books, Paul’s 2014 poetry collection Standard Variation was short-listed for the Adelaide Writers’ Week poetry prize, and his first poetry book won a national unpublished manuscript award.

Paul is also a widely published essayist and journalist, with work published in The Age, Meanjin, The Big Issue, ABC Religion and Ethics, Griffith Review and Eureka Street.
