AWW21 A Room Made of Leaves - Kate Grenville

Adelaide Writers' Week

Kate Grenville’s latest novel A Room Made of Leaves continues the disruption of conventional colonial narratives that began with her acclaimed The Secret River. What if Elizabeth, wife of the colonial monster John Macarthur, left behind brutally frank secret memoirs, she asks? And they told the real story behind the myth of the 18th century wife? Playful and audacious, this astonishing literary achievement delves into history to examine the very contemporary issues of fake stories and hidden truths, and where stories originate. Chaired by Clare Wright
