Ashley Hay

Ashley Hay

Ashley Hay’s work has been praised for its “incandescent intelligence and a rare sensibility”. Her awards include the Foundation for Australian Literary Studies’ Colin Roderick Award and the New South Wales’ Premier’s Literary Awards’ People’s Choice (for The Railwayman’s Wife), and the Bragg/UNSW Press Prize for Science Writing for The Forest at the Edge of Time (originally published in the Australian Book Review).

Her first novel, The Body in the Clouds, was celebrated by the New York Times as “a rich, meditative novel” whose “grander literary concepts are conveyed in … elegant prose”.  Her most recent novel, A Hundred Small Lessons, was shortlisted for the 2017 Queensland Literary Awards.

She lives in Brisbane and is the editor of Griffith Review.
