Warren Ellis: Nina Simone's Gum

Sydney Writers' Festival

The literary debut of celebrated musician Warren Ellis, Nina Simone’s Gum, takes its name from an unlikely keepsake he snatched from the underside of his idol’s piano in a moment of rapture. Join Warren as he sheds light on his playful memoir in which a meaning-rich relic blossoms into a metaphor for art, music and obsession, traversing his childhood in country Victoria, collaborations with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and prize-winning work with Dirty Three. Warren joins live via video in conversation with Marieke Hardy. If you enjoyed this episode, please rate and subscribe to our channel.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
