A Room Made of Leaves with Kate Grenville

The Book Pod with Corrie Perkin

In this new episode Corrie sits down with the prolific Kate Grenville to discuss her 2021 novel titled A Room Made of Leaves which delivers the reader an imagined (but oh so probable) account of the life of Elizabeth MacArthur - wife of the more notorious John MacArthur. Drawing directly on Elizabeth's correspondence and early historical records, Grenville's writing shapes the overlooked life of Elizabeth before and after her arrival into late18th century Sydney. Husband John may have gotten his face on the two dollar note for his pioneering farming prowess but this book will leave you in little doubt that the honour missed its true mark.
