News from the Sydney Writers Festival

This week, we have two new podcasts up on our podcast channel. First up, Samanth Subramanian, Emma Sky and Peter Frankopan discuss what makes some people turn from radical to fanatical in this all-too-relevant roundtable on the untold history of extremism; and then Australian author Don Watson shares his enduring love of Gabriel García Márquez in conversation with Delia Falconer. 
On the blog, we recommend Max Porter's blackly humorous Grief is the Thing with Feathers and revisit Randolph Stow'sTourmaline, a haunting novel set against the backdrop of the Western Australian desert.
