Stranger than Metafiction

Sat 10 Sep, 12pm

Prize-winning Australian crime novelists Sulari Gentill (The Woman in the Library) and Benjamin Stevenson (Everyone In My Family Has Killed Someone) have produced two of the year’s most original works of metafiction with wickedly clever, funny and twisty new books that interrogate the process of writing itself. They speak with broadcaster Fi Wright (The Breakfasters) about their ingenious and unpredictable stories that wittily pull back the curtain on writers, their fixations and the conventions of the murder mystery.
