Ideas

Conversations with Richard Fidler: Richard Flanagan

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse

Richard Flanagan joins Richard Fidler in conversation for a reflection on the writer’s life, career, and his new novel First Person.

To write his most recent novel, Richard drew deeply from personal experiences to explore the vexed question of what is truth? In this blistering story of a ghostwriter haunted by his demonic subject, the Man Booker Prize winner turns to lies, crime and literature with devastating effect.

By turns compelling, comic, and chilling, Flanagan’s latest literary adventure is a haunting journey into the heart of our age.

Richard Flanagan will be signing copies of First Person on the evening.

Writers+Ideas is supported by O’Neill Architecture and RPS.
