New novels from two of Australia’s best-loved writers examine the crucial role that family plays in happiness and mental health. Emily Maguire writes across genres on sex, feminism, culture and literature, and her latest work Love Objects, is a novel about love and family, betrayal and forgiveness, and the things we do to fill our empty spaces. Best-selling novelist and memoirist Alice Pung’s new book, One Hundred Days is a fractured fairytale exploring the faultlines between love and control through the lens of a pregnant teenager’s relationship with her mother. Don’t miss the chance to hear two writers at the height of their powers explore how fiction can both expose our frailties and enhance our understanding of family dynamics and mental health.
