MUD Literary Prize description

Following in the illustrious footsteps of last year’s breakout star Trent Dalton, the winner of the 2020 MUD Literary Prize is Sienna Brown with Master of My Fate. Telling a little-known sliver of Australian convict history, Master of My Fate is a fascinating journey into the life of William Buchanan, from his early life as a slave in Jamaica, to his role in the slave uprisings in the 1830s, to his transportation to and eventual freedom in colonial New South Wales.  An unputdownable, illuminating debut.
