An Australian Jew has been nominated for Australia’s most prestigious literary prize. The fifth book by Andrea Goldsmith, “The Prosperous Thief,” is set mostly in Germany and tracks the history of two Jewish families affected by the Shoah. Goldsmith, 53, a fifth-generation Australian with no family Holocaust connections, will have to compete against 43 other nominees, including Thomas Keneally, author of “Schindler’s List,” who was nominated for his latest book, “Angel in Australia.”
