2008 winner y separately published work icon Put the Billy On : Growing up in Queensland's Gulf Country Ann Jones , Carindale : Glass House Books , 2008 9438188 2008 single work autobiography

'Put The Billy On gives us insights into what it was like to grow up in Australia in the 1930s and 40s. The story is mixed with undertones of delightful humour and fading innocence. Historical events, such as the lead up to World War II, are artfully compared to the tensions in the speaker's own life. Ann Jones invites us to reflect on how far we've come, and the precious things that may have been lost on the way.' (Source: On-line)
