From the Pulitzer Prize winning author of March and People of the Book comes a vivid and unique new novel for lovers of sweeping historical fiction.

Australian-born and international bestseller, Geraldine Brooks joins Sarah Kanowski (co-presenter of Conversations on ABC Radio) to discuss her latest novel, Horse.

A discarded painting in a roadside clean-up, forgotten bones in a research archive, and Lexington, the greatest racehorse in US history. From these strands of fact, Geraldine Brooks weaves a sweeping story of spirit, obsession, and injustice across American history.

From working for the Wall Street Journal covering crises in the Middle East, Africa and the Balkans, to having her novels translated into more than 25 languages, Geraldine Brooks is a master of her craft.

Join us for Writers+Ideas and delve into the latest masterpiece from a writer with a prodigious talent for bringing the past to life.
