Limberlost: Robbie Arnott in Conversation
The award-winning author is making his first appearance at the festival to speak about his third novel, Limberlost, a stunning chronicle of life and land: of carnage and kindness, blood ties and love. Jennifer Mills described its scope in Australian Book Review:
‘Limberlost is a book of difficult small choices: about what to care for, and what to hang on to, and what it’s like to love things and people and animals and places you are powerless to save’.
Hosted by Chris Flynn.
