AUTHOR IN-CONVERSATION – THE BELL OF THE WORLD WITH GREGORY DAY
GRLC Events Team
Gregory Day’s new novel has been described by The Guardian as ‘an electric crescendo of Australian nature writing’ and by The Saturday Paper as ‘a glorious creation, a singing gift’. The Bell of the World is a song about the natural wonders that are not yet gone and a luminous prehistory of contemporary climate change and its connection to colonialism. It is a book immersed in the early to mid-twentieth century but written very much for the hearts of the future.
