We are delighted to be celebrating the release of Paul Dalgarno's novel A Country of Eternal Light.

An astonishingly inventive and deeply moving novel from one of Australia's most exciting writers. Margaret Bryce, deceased mother of twins, has been having a hard time since dying in 2014. Mostly she enjoys the experience of revisiting the past, but she's tiring of the seemingly random events to which she repeatedly bears witness. There must be something more to life, she thinks. And death. Paul Dalgarno has written a poignant, utterly original and bitingly funny novel about complicated grief and how we remain wanted by our loved ones, dead or alive.

RWR McDonald will be in conversation with Dalgarno on the night.

This event is free to attend but bookings are essential.
