Award–winning creator of Offspring Debra Oswald discusses her newest pulse-racing novel, The Family Doctor. A novel of searing emotional truth, told with the relentless pull of a thriller, this is the story of a dedicated suburban GP who faces stark moral choices when confronted with domestic violence and judicial indifference. Oswald shares insights into her riveting, provocative novel about women’s fury, traumatic grief, deep friendship, and how she produced what Geraldine Brooks calls ‘a gripping thriller, brimming with heart and intellect’. With Toni Jordan.
