Even as we speak, they will be getting stuck into the $120-a-head gourment nosh (it had better be gourmet, at that price) at the Miles Franklin presentation dinner. It's 8.35 pm in Sydney; I imagine the announcement is being made about now.
So here's a last-minute prediction, except that my psychic powers are getting a lot of interference and static from my wishes in the matter: I really, really, really want Alexis Wright's Carpentaria to win.
And I do actually think it might be going to.
Now I'll check the ABC news site (they were first with the news last year) and see whether I was right or not. Watch this space ...
