Krissy Kneen

The Wheeler Centre

Event Date: 
24 August 2018
Author / Presenters: 
Krissy Kneen and Elizabeth McCarthy

Krissy Kneen is a writer of lavish imagination.

Over seven books – including five novels, one volume of poetry and a memoir – she's invented bizarre fictional technologies, conjured extravagant sexual escapades, and speculated about consciousness-fusing with jellyfish. Female sexual adventure is front and centre in much of Kneen's work, but her writing twists and traverses several genres including literary fiction, erotica and sci-fi.

Her 2017 book, An Uncertain Grace, explored ideas of posthumanism, morality and identity. It was shortlisted for the 2018 Stella Prize. Kneen’s new book, Wintering, is a gothic thriller set in the Tasmanian wilderness.

At Montalto, Kneen will discuss her latest work with Elizabeth McCarthy.

Antipodes Bookshop and Gallery will be our bookseller at this event.
