Hear from acclaimed Australian writer Dennis Glover about his captivating new adventure novel Thaw – an exploration of the human spirit set on the coldest and driest continent on the planet. For Melbourne City Reads, Dennis Glover, author of The Last Man in Europe and Factory 19, and one of Australia’s leading speechwriters and political commentators, sits down with Ramona Koval to share the inspiration, research and thought-provoking ideas behind his new novel Thaw. Taking as its inspiration the ill-fated 1912 Antarctic expedition undertaken by British explorer Robert Falcon Scott, and coupling it with a contemporary tale about climate change, Thaw examines the unfathomable power of the natural world, and the enduring resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity.
