_Three Dollars_ is a wonderful novel. Read it, read it, read it. The film of
it (with David Wenham, Frances O'Connor and Sarah Wynter) is due out next

What about books for children set in Melbourne? There's Irini Savvides one
in the My Story series, but can't think of any others off the top of my
head. This is all way OT, sorry!
