Writers on Mondays
WRITERS ON MONDAYS
Stella! Charlotte Wood in conversation with Emily Perkins
The Australian has described Charlotte Wood as one
of the country's 'most original and provocative writers.' She is the author of
five novels and two books of nonfiction. Her latest novel, The Natural Way of Things,
won the 2016 Stella Prize, the 2016 Indie Book of the Year and Novel of the
Year, and was joint winner of the Australian Prime Minister's Literary Award
for Fiction. It has been published in Britain and the US as well as many
countries in Europe. In 2016 Charlotte was named the Charles Perkins Centre's
inaugural Writer in Residence at the University of Sydney. Charlotte is joined
in conversation by novelist Emily
Perkins to discuss just what fiction can do in these troubling
times, and what it is to write into the world from Australasia.
