In her epic new novel Edenglassie, Goorie author Melissa Lucashenko unfolds magnificent, heartrending dual stories set in Brisbane in 1854 – when First Nations people still outnumbered colonists – and in 2024. 

Told with the signature blend of grit and wit that captivated readers of her Miles Franklin–winning novel Too Much Lip, the story has earned praise as a ‘work that’s both demotic, funny, and uncompromising’ (Tim Winton). 

Catch Lucashenko in conversation with Kate Evans about a brilliant saga of love, language and land that torches colonial myths, while reimagining an Australian future.
