Richard Flanagan is arguably Australia’s greatest living writer. He’s an adventurer, a Rhodes scholar, a film maker, and the acclaimed author of Gould’s Book of FishThe Unknown Terrorist, and Wanting, among others. Much of his work is inspired by fact and woven into haunting and powerful fiction.
His most recent novel, The Narrow Road to The Deep North, explores friendship, memory, and how war illuminates love. To write the book, Flanagan drew deeply from conversations with his late father about his experience as a slave laborer on the Thai-Burma Railway during World War Two. In acute historic detail, and with great humility, Flanagan has written his most personal novel yet - to wide acclaim.
Join Flanagan when he comes to Hattery for a conversation about the spinning of fact into fiction, the paradox of love and war, and the importance of storytelling.
