Richard Flanagan: On Love Stories


Sun 23 Feb 2014

Richard Flanagan’s The Narrow Road to the Deep North has been praised as his most accomplished work yet.

With the narrative drawn from the real-life experiences of his father, Arch Flanagan, as a Japanese POW in WWII and one of Sir Edward ‘Weary’ Dunlop’s Thousands on the Thai-Burma Death Railway, Flanagan explores the tenuousness of life and love in a novel of sweeping yet intimate scope.

Flanagan reflects on the significance of the stories that come before us and the stories we leave behind. Join one of Australia's finest novelists as he speaks on stories of love.
