The Fearless Fiction of Amanda Lohrey

Sat 10 Sep, 12pm

The new book Lohrey by literary critic and researcher Julieanne Lamond pays homage to Amanda Lohrey, the fearless writer, novelist and 2021 Miles Franklin winner whose career spans four decades. The book celebrates Lohrey’s bold and singular style and illuminates the key themes of her writing, including the relationship between the personal and the political, masculinity and free will, human and non-human worlds, and how reading shapes us. Lamond and Lohrey appear together in conversation with ABC broadcaster Sarah L’Estrange.

In partnership with ABC RN
